So I took an hour this morning to do battle with the blackberries again. Last year’s post on this subject brought up a lot of emotions from myself and others. This year I felt more like a warrior doing battle to penetrate into an enemy’s fortress. But for me it was using the machete to get to the stems of the blackberry vines.
This year I actually feel like we are making progress in our battles against the blackberries. Between the macheteing, the goats, and the tractor, I am seeing less vines in areas we don’t want them. Now we have the battles against the nettles, comfrey, morning glory and foxglove…..
