This year, the blackberries are taking over in the woods behind our house. They're everywhere. Here's one evening's load:
And the berries aren't even peaking -- I expect a week of pulling out at least a quart every day. We'll end up with a couple of GALLONS to make jam with. And the number of new canes coming up is insane -- it will be twice as big next year.
I'm covered with little random outbreaks of poison ivy. We try and shower it off but it seems like it can't be denied. As much as I've been crashing around in the woods, it's a wonder I don't have more.
