I also grow Blackberries and Strawberries, but haven't made anything out of them yet. Might try that this weekend, I have bags in the freezer.
This spring I just planted a Green and a Yellow Apple tree and 2 Peach Trees. I was psyched to see about 100 little peaches on my little tree, but then I did some reading and found out I had to remove about 3/4 of them or they would either stay small or the little branches would break. Also found out I have to prune (cut off) much of these trees next winter to make them grow properly and in the right shape. Who Knew??
