When I first moved to Shoreline I was very happy to discover that there were wild blackberries growing all over the place, free for the picking! I quickly learned that they are widely reviled in these parts because they're an invasive species that pretty much takes over everything. So they're bad news for native plants and a real pain to try to eradicate.
So that's a bummer.
I have to admit, though, that I still enjoy a hot blackberry cobbler made with fresh (free) blackberries.
At any rate, the breaking news is that the wild, invasive, troublesome blackberries are turning ripe in Shoreline!
