Neat! Our backyard over by the (defunct) koi pond is being overgrown by wild blackberry bushes! Don’t know where they came from, but I’m utterly delighted to have them. Tonight, Matthew and I went out and picked some of the early ripe berries–about a double handful–sprinkled sugar over them, and had them for dessert. Yummy!
It is so very cool that we’ve got wild berry plants in our backyard! Although they’ve got some pretty impressive thornage going on. Got snagged a couple times hunting for ripe berries. But it was definitely worth it.
Matthew might go out with some twine next week and tie some of the plants up so we can harvest the fruit better.
My god. We’re gardening. Who woulda thunk it?
