We have hundreds of blackberry brambles all over the property and yet we never get to eat any. Talk about thorny! The birds don’t seem to mind and of course, they don’t have to navigate through our very rough woods to even get to the berries. They just fly down and grab a bite.
We rescued our Holly tree from whatever fungus was trying to kill it. We still don’t know what it was, but the folks at Koopmans said the spray would pretty much kill any fungus and it has. I think the constant wetness from June into August made our giant Holly tree unhappy, but it has perked up again.
