Blackberries and Berries That Are Black

It's impossible to walk barefoot in the yard. The brambles are everywhere. Even wearing shoes does not protect ankles from getting scratched. Ouch!

I really do just love the taste of Blackberries. But the thorns on the trailing types are simply wicked. So I never planted any until I discovered the thornless varieties. And as a bonus the berries on these are nice and large.

Very well presented article!

I got a real education here tonight Greene. And a great laugh. And I'm more confused than ever. Oh well, whatever they are, they sure taste good so I guess we should just hush up & enjoy eating the berries that are black. nodding
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

My neighbor gave me dewberries last year. They are berries. They are black. They are wonderful, but they do NOT taste like blackberries.
LOVED the article! Had me grinning all the way through! Hilarious!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
