Blackberries

I just love this plant. It's a blackberry. It lives in my side yard  A friend gave me a start a few years ago.   


One of the great things about this plant is that it is thornless.  If you've picked many blackberries, you know the benefits of that. 
 Another benefit is that its berries are really big and plump and blackberry flavored.  And, well, Big.

Breakfast for Papa.  Summer is so short around here.  Find pleasure where you can.

  1. Does it wander? My raspberries would be all over the backyard if I did not get rid of the little shoots coming up. Big berries like that would be wonderful.

  2. Melynda, My raspberry wanders like that also. So far, the black berry has been pretty easy to keep contained. The occasional sprout but not many and I just dig them or pull them. Right now all my sprouts are spoken for. You can the next one if you want it.
