Picked the first blackberries today. Im disappointed in the amount of blooms that aren't producing berries. Lots of them. There were bees around, so I don't know what the problem is.

I don't know if I did the right thing, but I pruned my tomato plants, trimming lower branches, and the largest non-producing branches. They just looked out of control, like a thick jungle, so I gave them some air. I'd heard of topping tomato plants, particularly celebrities. But anyway we'll see. I've got blooms but no small fruit yet, on tomatoes and peppers both.
