Invasive but tasty

Invasive but tasty

It’s blackberry season – and since they are alarmingly invasive plants here, this means that August (and sometimes into September) is an all-you-can-eat buffet of blackberry goodness. I’ve been picking a couple of handfuls every day on my walk home; our hillsides are covered with them and while the birds get the majority of the berries, there are still plenty within arm’s reach. The city cuts them back once a year, but that just makes the plants more determined and the canes are heavy with ripening fruit. Might have to get out this weekend and stock up our freezer with berries for jam.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
