Summer Seed Plantinbg Experiment: Perennial flowers. 7.14.18
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.
I've been eating my large spinless blackberries for a week, and they are tasty. I think they taste better than they have for the last 2 years. I had planned on removing them but will let them go for another year.
Last April, I planted 4 nut trees on "the farm". The two English walnuts made it, but the pecan trees didn't--or at least so I thought--until I went to water them today. Low and behold, there was a nice sprout coming up from the base of one. Nice surprise!
The only problem is, Daniel, we grow much more than we can eat! I'm thankful I only have one zucchini plant, and it is a volunteer! I have 5 in the fridge. And I may be turning green eating collards, chard, kale, and lettuce--not to mention green beens. Then, there's sweet corn. Mercy!
Daniel, I like your wonderful harvest.
Kathy and Daniel, I saved your methods of killing ants. Will try them the next time they show-up where they're not wanted.
My daily dose of cheer,
Daniel, a beautiful harvest for breakfast and snacking on throughout the day!.
I like the various ant remedies! It's great to have alternatives to try.
