My Blackberries are Ripe!

I finally get to blog about my blackberries.

We had a very bad winter and a very hungry rabbit that liked to chew - so our blackberry canes, that were to have berries on them this year, all died. Every one of them!

I didn't think we were going to have any blackberries this year. But the new canes that grew proved me wrong. Some of them had berries - and that is not supposed to happen. New canes just don't have berries, but somebody forgot to tell them that.

 they like to hide

 peppermint abounds at the end of one of the rows
but I don't complain, because in the other row
poison ivy abounds

I don't have very many, but 
I think they are the prettiest berries I've had in years

I am very proud of my vines. 
They gave it their all and against all odds, they did very, very good!

Anyone else enjoying nature's fruits this year?
