Blackberries along the fence wall

Although unwanted but still qualifies as surprise. Volunteer blackberry vine along he back fence has always annoyed me, I meant to get rid of it for months. While weeding on the retaining wall along the fencing wall yesterday, I spotted surprise cluster of blackberries. Hurray!

I don’t REALLY need blackberries in my own garden, they grow like weed here in pacific northwest. 10 minutes of berry picking in my neighborhood once a week in Aug-Sept keeps my kids very happy in this berry season. I don’t even go far, we got plenty of blackberries just walk around the this suburban community.

So what happened next?
I popped sweet ripened berries in my mouth and at the same time whacked berry vines, so ungrateful of me. Hmmm.
