All around my property grow wild berries...
I'll be honest and say that, I knew we had Raspberries growing here, but I wasn't sure if the dark ones were Blackberries or not. I had to Google how to tell them apart. I found THIS interesting web site. It does a great job of explaining the difference.
As it turns out, we have Red Raspberry, Black Raspberry and Blackberry plants scattered all through out the yard. They're growing right along edge the driveway and in the open areas.
I have to say that the Blackberries are my favorite... They are SO sweet. As I was making this post, I finished off my small portion of them, and saved a handful for Nancy...
I've also spent some time over at the neighbors place. He's the one that's building the garage and had offered me any of the downed trees... Well, I've just about cleared the place out. There's one log still to get, it's probably 10" in diameter and maybe 16' long. It will have to wait for colder weather, there's a hornet's nest in the ground next to the log... I'll be patient and let the frost take care of the problem.
I figure I now have 7.5 "face cords" of firewood. That would make a single row stack, 4' high by 60' long. I only have a small amount left to split and stack. If I pull anymore wood out the woods this fall, I'll have to make another rack to hold it. Everything outside is getting full.
No Motorcycle content in this post, except to say that I took the Wr250X out for a spin. I had to run over to the local hardware store to get a couple things to fix my bbq grill. The grill needed so attention. So, I took it all apart, replaced the regulator, knocked a big spider out of one the cast iron burners, cleaned the debris out of the bottom, put it all back together and fired it up It will reach over 700 degrees F now!!!
