They're Back But Not Exactly Better Than Ever

So, last year, just when blackberry season was getting underway the electric company came out and sprayed anything and everything around the electrical poles and under the lines. It killed all the blackberry bushes that were across the road which meant I had to find my blackberries elsewhere. I was afraid the berries were done for and they wouldn't grow back this year but back in May I started seeing those familiar white blossoms again. And although the extreme heat and the lack of rain have them looking a little peaked I managed to gather enough for one of my favorite desserts, blackberry creme brulee. Mmmmmm.

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. I love berries of all kinds. I wish I had more of a yard so I could plant some.

  2. Maybe the electric company will stay away this year!

  3. I'm glad you got at least one bunch out of there!
