Tackling blackberries is a pain in more than one way. With the proper clothing and equipment, you can pull blackberries without injury.

Supplies:

  • 1 set Blackberry Pulling Gloves
  • long pants, preferrably 2 layers
  • long sleeves, preferrably 2 layers
  • rubber boots
  • loppers, if necessary

Steps:

  1. Wear long sleeves. A denim shirt or jacket is best. Otherwise a sweatshirt with another shirt underneath may work.
  2. Wear long pants, such as jeans. If you have a pair of long underwear, those work as a good under layer.

  4. Wear rubber boots, with your pants tucked inside. The thickest blackberries will be about shin height.
  5. Assemble a set of blackberry pulling gloves.
  6. Now you are ready to tackle those blackberries and WIN! :)

  8. NOTE: If possible, pull the blackberries out with the roots. You can use loppers to cut off the tall stuff for better access, if necessary.
