Blackberry Season is Coming

A couple days ago I went out to view the blackberries we have here at the Thad Cochran Southern Horticultural Research Laboratory.  What I saw where numerous berries in a variety of stages of development.  Below are some photos of how they are progressing so far.  I believe we will be harvesting in the next couple of weeks.
