Re: Wild Blackberries
We have several hundred acres of them and we could not put a dent in the crop we had this year as well. Unfortunately the chiggers were a bumper crop as well so picking them requires immediate removal and bagging of ALL clothing and an immediate shower or suffer the agony of a zillion chigger bites. We will be bush hogging large patches of them that have grown up in the pastures.
Are those thornless blackberries in your picture? They appear to be a slightly different variety than those around here.
