Blackberries are still a ways off for us. Don't even have strawberries yet. Few more weeks to go. I had a real nice spot for blackberries, almost as big as you have. Than they rented the field out and the guy ran the fence down by the blackberries.  :o

We've had strawberries fir a month now, but just getting going heavier. Have both June and ever. 
The tame blackberries were just planted this spring in their beds. I saw some flowering, but won't be much this year.

@Raider Bill Those ribs pictured were brought by a friend. They came over to swim. All my wife did was season them. I smoked for 2 hours on high smoke, then applied 1 cup of apple juice, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and about 4 TBSP of butter. Then wrapped them up in tinfoil for another hour at 325
Our ribs we raised I can't remember if they come with it on or not from the butcher, but I've never seen my wife remove any, nor has she said anything.
@scsmith42 We're transplants. I grew up in the frozen tundra. They can keep that stuff...... It's been good to us overall.

Thanks,
I like to ask about the membrane. I always do. Some never and some look at me weird when I ask.
Couple weekends ago we were in the Florida panhandle eating ribs I asked the cook who said he splices the membrane between the bones so it pulls back.
Anyway, Great place you have there!

Best and I mean the best chicken I've ever ate. 95 mins high smoke till the probe reached 168. Then seared the thighs on the gas grate sear for a couple of minutes to set the skin. Turned the smoker to direct grill and to 350 for about 5 minutes for the drums. They don't sear well, as they are too round. 
Wife marinated them in a buttermilk marinade. Then she patted them dry and applied her dry rub. WoW. I mean WoW.
