Blackberries in a week

At least that's my guess. Small pockets are ripening here and there. They're tasty. Also a few blueberries in places. The blueberries are ripening quicker on the new plants than the old ones. I guess that's because they came from Mississippi where it was warmer.

Replanted watermelons today. Put drip hose on them immediately since there is no forecast for rain any time the rest of this week. It is very dry here. Dry and hot. I read about some other blueberry farms whose berries ripened several weeks earlier this year. Ripened even before blackberries. That is unusual. Perhaps because of the mild winter and 95 degree weather in April. Strange climactic times we are living in.
