A good wild blackberry patch is hard to find. In fact, a neighbor told me that if you do find a patch, you never disclose its location.  On our farm, we are blessed with several small blackberry patches. Often the berries are small, incomplete, and rather sparse– they are wild after all. Well, this year the blackberries are out in force and we have enjoyed the bounty. As we continue to expand our permaculture gardens, forest, fields and thickets, we will plant domesticated blackberries alone with a great many things. But for now we continue to enjoy wild blackberries.

Hi, I work here on Jonah's Run Farm as the farm manager (the person who takes care of day-to-day chores and directs and plans more complex operations.) It's hard but enjoyable work.
