The blackberry bushes along our driveway and paths have finally started to hit their peak, and guess who's discovered them? Nick the Dog had been limiting his feasting to his daily walks, but the other day while we were doing chores, we noticed someone had disappeared. Sure enough, he had walked himself down the road to the berry patch and was helping himself.
The word is that this year's yield isn't quite as good as in years past. But we're not complaining. Besides, we can still go down to the "corner market" and pick up those berries you saw that continue to be the size of a bricklayer's thumb.
