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.

Ditomaceouse earth is supposed to kill lots of insects but it's tricky to put down. You need to wear a mask over the nose and mouth. And the wind must be still.
Spud good to hear from you. What's a spineless berry ??

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.

Randy, that's awesome!
I thought about planting nut trees, but decided I would not live to see them bear. I do have some hazelnuts. Every year, squirrels get every nut. Ive never tasted one.

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.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 3, 2016 at 6:41am

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,
