Howdy, Stranger


Look what's growing through the fence! My neighbor (from whose garden this vine emerged) says it's a western berry similar to a black raspberry. I tried one (The black one above. It is no more.) and it tastes like a very mild blackberry. Or, if you've had one, an olallieberry.

There are only about 10 berries, but I plan to let this vine growgrowgrow, so the sky's the limit next year.


Did I mention that Linda's raspberries (growing all across our shared property line) are ripe? Oh, yes. And today I spotted what I believe may be red currants. Then there's her apricot tree. It's at least 30 feet tall, covered in hundreds of apricots. Apparently her doctor has forbidden Linda to eat apricots.

What a pickle. How can I help?
