5 BLACKBERRY TIPS FROM 2 HOMESTEADERS

In this video, from OFF GRID with DOUG and STACY, some neighbors help Doug plant some blackberries. They give some tips on growing them.

From the description:

Had some visitors stop in from the YouTube channel FARM ALARM here is the link https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOGE…

We talk about the Blackberry bush and transplanting and pruning and several other good tips for you folks to know so you can have a successful harvest. They make great jams and they are very healthy for you to eat. Much like spinach, raisins, apples, plums and grapes, blackberries are rich in bioflavonoids and Vitamin C, but other nutritional benefits include a very low sodium count and having only 62 calories to a cup. The dark blue color ensures blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruit!!

(Note from Shorty: Doug and Stacy are not Amish or Mennonite. He just chooses to dress this way.)

    I am growing 2 varieties of raspberries and 1 variety of strawberries myself.

    also have a grapevine,

    I will admit one breed of raspberries sometimes doesn’t bloom, and will have to be treated as a 2nd year cane in that event, but the golden annes are rather reliable everbearing and the strawberries are small, but very sweet if you grow strawberries, keep an eye on the runners so it makes more plants where YOU want them, otherwise they’ll take over your yard in a very short time.

    if you can grow your own fruit and food, DO IT, you’ll save money because your not buying in store.
