Daniel, I've never had bbq rabbit, but I'm sure I would like it because I like fried rabbit.
I planted catnip one year because I heard it deterred ants. Cats destroyed it immediately. I didn't mind that much. I like cats, but not their poop in my garden.
I've heard you talk about raccoons in your corn before Randy. I'm sure those smart critters are hard to keep out.
Here, it's squirrels and cats that are hard to keep out. Neighbors here let their cats roam outside all the time, and they love to defecate in my soft garden soil. It would take a very high non-climbable fence to keep the cats out, and to keep out the squirrels would take a fence with very small openings that went completely over the top of my property.
Funny story, Spud. I don't worry about rabbits this late in the year. It's the raccoons in my sweet corn!
It may be a good thing I've got a fence completely around my property. Meant to keep-out dogs and children, It may now be useful to keep munchers from my garden.
4 days ago, before the sun was up, when I started my mile walk, I saw something black crouched down in the alley by my house. I approached, and saw it had rabbit ears. Coming closer, I saw it was domesticated. It wasn't scared by my approach.
Part way through my walk, I saw two more domesticated rabbits. Coming back the same way, I saw them again, this time, they were being chased by a woman. She was unsuccessful in catching them. There was a man with her, and by the way they acted, it looked like the rabbits had escaped from their place.
When I reached my house, the black rabbit was eating my neighbor's lawn, or something on the lawn. It finally hopped down the alley.
This morning, it was back, munching on my neighbor's lawn again.
In the 30 years I've lived here, I've never seen a rabbit before.
I guess we call them "thorns" in the midwest. And yes, blackberry bushes are notoriously thorny, more so than raspberries. My "Fall" crop of reds is beginning to bloom. Should have gallons!
Peaches are ready. Yum yum.
Kathy, the way I worded it, sounds like the fruit itself has spines or not. It's just the canes that have spines or not. Did I confuse you, or do you have another name for spines?
Some people may not know there are berry plants that have spines because it seems that stores only sell spineless ones.
A spineless berry is one that has no spines, so you don't have spines jabbing you when you pick the berries.
I'm growing a new blackberry that has very sharp spines, that seem to reach-out an poke you when you get close. The word is they taste better than the spineless ones. Wearing a long sleeve shirt and gloves to pick the berries will be a must.
