When we first moved here, we noticed what appeared to be berry bushes growing. But it was autumn, and it was hard to tell what type they might be. The next summer I spotted a few blackberries growing on one and tasted one of them. Ugh. SOUR!
But this year, we seem to have a bumper crop of the wild blackberries, so I was motivated to go out and pick them. With enough sugar, they ought to taste good, right? However, this year’s crop seems fairly sweet. Yay! They grow, in what we call “the lower part of the yard”, or “the brush”, or even occasionally, “the back 40″. Now, I’ve renamed it “the berry thicket”!
