If you think its about electronics - you are mistaken - it is about nature's original blackberry - a berry! 193 People


    I feel I must post this word of caution to all you Blackberry lovers. BEWARE. During the 1940s war years, families used to get together and go out Blackberrying. Of course, kids being kids, we used to eat more than we saved. It was during one of these trips, everyone was enjoying...

    Used to Just Like Them

    I used to just like them, now a friend has given me a new understanding of this wonderful berry.   I will now think of this person every time I eat them, along with all the other berries.

    Blackberries Are So Luscious

    The other berries are good (notably strawberry and blueberry) but nothing is as luscious and tart as a fresh blackberry that releases all its flavor and juice when you bite into those gorgeously built nuggets (that is what I call them, they probably have a proper name).  It...

    Maggots In 'em!

    The Berkeley Hills

    Back when I lived in Berkeley, I used to love hiking up in the hills. From my years as a boy scout, I knew enough about wild plants to identify the choice edibles among the native flora. On the north facing slopes where there is enough water, the blackberries really do well...
