I was letting this grow because I thought it was wild blackberry, but I'm not so sure anymore. It's about 3-4 ft high with prickers. Should I pull it? Thanks!

it looks like a blackberry
i would not let a black berry grow that close to my house
i pull them all the time, they are invasive as the dickens once you let them get set

Good to know. Maybe I'll transplant one into a patio container for my wildlife and pull the rest. Thanks!
