I am a city gardner in zone 6. We have dramatic temp swings in this area with cold winters, and hot summers. Love to grow my own fruit and veggies

It was raining. As soon as it touched anything on ground it turned to ice. I've never seen that before, and it's all gone now. Weird New England weather. @gjones

Love to eat blackberries, but in our area they are a nusence growing into huge mounds stretching vines 20 - 30ft long in one season. Finding a small vine in your yard is not a happy experience. So for one month they redeem themselves with their yummy fruit

Wow, thirty foot vines, I had no idea they got so big!! @momasherri

comment
momasherri

The mound can get to the size of a shed. The vines die in the winter then in the spring they send up new vines over the old so the mound keeps growing

They also send out underground shoots. They are pretty hard to get rid of once established.

Yes they are!! I do battle with them every spring and fall.

It's good to see them in large masses, they're not as common as they used to bee @columbiariver

They're here though! We haven't completely ruined them. I have hope they will repopulate. We have many, many of them this year. Delightful bees 🐝
