I'm not the only one interested in blackberries

As this little guy proved -- or tried to -- when I was clearing one of the blackberry patches.

Not so little, actually -- 27 inches of copperhead wanting nothing more than to be a copperhead.

But this one was doing its copperhead thing too close to the house, and so it is now a former copperhead.

Blackberries Soon

Nearly there!

Maybe as early as tomorrow (and I will probably find at least one or two that are ready this afternoon), and certainly by Tuesday . . . Blackberries!.

Just in time for the Fourth!

And judging by how productive the plants are this year, plenty of berries for the Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh, too.
