No sooner have the blueberries begun to fade than our friends the blackberries have show up on bines! Our legs are scratched all over, but I can already taste the blackberry muffins on a cold January morning with a hot cup of coffee.

A friend of ours offered up the opinion the other day that the bumper berry and fruit crop this year may be a sign of a hard winter. I’m of the opinion that plants and animals often know more than we do about what to expect, and last years berry crop was short and small, and we had a very mild winter, so perhaps there’s something to that.
