OK so my asparagus was the beginning of my spring harvest. But these come in second. I have been really working this year to take advantage of what we have already growing on our piece of property. Rather than always buying my herbs elsewhere. I want to be more self sufficient. So the blackberries are thriving, I starting picking blackberry leaf to dry. Will probably harvest blackberry leaf at least 2 or 3 more times this year. We have so much of it that I really don't have to worry about harvesting too much, but I am aware of how much I am harvesting from any one plant as I DO want blackberries later on in the season, YUM! I am simply drying it on a screen elevated just a bit off my dining room table so the air can circulate. Blackberry leaf is high in Vit C so a great immune system booster. Also it is good for the digestive system.
