In May we found acres and acres of blackberries on our Farm.  Dreams of selling them to the local health food store danced in our head.  It didn't matter that we would bleed to death trying to pick them all.

By mid June, they were ready.

My Dad said they were just brambles.

Not knowing what a bramble is, I looked it up.  Ok, so brambles are thorny plants that include blackberries and raspberries.

But I bet he doesn't know that the leaves are a main food source of stick insects, which I think is what this is.

  1. We have blackberries we fondly call 'frankinberries' because they are freakishly aggressive...if you find yours taking over goats are ideal for keeping them in check! Kim
