Prickers and Sparks
Several years back we dis- covered a treasure trove of black- berries growing along the hedgerow between our property and our neighbor on the hill. When Mike had the old hedgerow stone buried, our blackberries disappeared for a while, but they're back and it looks like a good crop this year! I think we might even find enough fruit for a blackberry pie, though most of them will go into jam. My hands will be covered with microscopic lacerations for the next couple weeks. Those vines are most vicious!
