Yesterday I pruned off some floricanes. And the thorns scratched me lots!

The blackberry bush is in fruit. Following summer rain, I have been picking plump, sweet drupes! These I have begun freezing.

I am running out of space in my freezer. Yet I have a large container of blackberries in the fridge.

Early spring, the blackberry bush's fruiting is in decline. But I still eat fresh fruit from it daily. I noticed browning of the further leaves, which I attribute to drought.

Yes, Sol23:


I also have three succulents. That have grown much bigger since I was given them in tiny pots.


But most of my effort now goes into that blackberry bush. Late autumn it still has fruit. But I am mainly pruning off the spent floricanes.

The blackberry fruit is still tasty--though heavily frost-damaged this winter! I have pruned off more spent floricanes.

This winter I have been heavily pruning the blackberry bush! So I have cut out spent floricanes, right down to the root crown.
