..............On the northern end of my property I have a very healthy and growing community of what I believe is wild blackberries. They are very small and very sweet if they live long enough to ripen. Of course, birds, bees and all other creatures that like sweets start harvesting before they reach maturity. The thorns on their vines are like the "needles from Hell" and only the brave venture into their inner sanctum. I don't know if they can be harvested and canned or what. They are on MY side of the fence so I (as the Only Human with access) have thought about maybe trying to save some for future consumption. I putup a sign with Big red letters that said "All Winged Trespassors will Be Shot" and I was promply stung by a Bee whom didn't like My attitude I suppose. Maybe I will just sample the "Fruit" and let Mother Nature allocate her Resources as SHE see's fit. ........fordy..
