A berry bush, thought long lost to drought and neglect, suddenly came to life this year with a vengeance. It had been so long since we planted it, we even forgot what kind of berry bush it is. No doubt now.

Yep, they are as delicious as they look.

Luckily, there's plenty more where that came from, and I even managed to get it netted so we can enjoy most of the crop. It's a welcome treat at the end of garden watering duties.

  1. Oh my gosh Kris, we have acres and acres and acres of blackberries. I actually don't think it is possible for a parcel of land to *not* have blackberries here. There's always enough for us and the deer, coyotes and birds.

    Ours won't start to ripen until sometime in August, and they usually last until the end of September.

    We have Evergreens, which are the native plants, and Himalayans, which are non-native. The Evergreen berries are a little firmer and not as sweet.
