The interesting thing about establishing berry bushes or beds is that you don’t want much fruit the first couple years so that the roots can establish themselves. However this means that when you do get a handful of berries they all ripen at different times. These blackberries are making us pick 1 a day so we can’t spoil our appetite.
Unfortunately the deer are still having a field day with the thornless variety. If that keeps up we may just transplant some of these as the deer seem to not give them any attention.
