I picked this small bowl (maybe 1 1/2 cups) of blackberries this morning. The berries are just starting to ripen, but there are buckets of them. The plants are wild volunteers that started growing in a small square of my property which we fenced off so the llamas couldn't get to it. (Where my electric meter is.) To actually get in there, I would need to climb over the 5 foot tall fence, or walk all the way around. I can't really do either and still be available to keep Mom safe quickly.
This bowl is what I could reach through the fence, or over top the fence. I am contemplating snipping a few wires here and there (it would be a fenestrated fence!) so more of my arm fits through. As it is, I have a hard time even getting my hand in. It is frustrating seeing all of those berries just out of reach!
