Paths around blackberry bushes? For those of us old enough to remember Song of the South and Brer Rabbit, there is an apt line in the story where Brer Rabbit pleads with the bear "Please don't throw me in the brier patch! Please don't throw me in the brier patch!....." and the bear does, not knowing that it's the rabbit's safe hideaway. I can tell you that IF you were able to get into these bushes, you would never get out...they were the thorns from hell and I picked them with gloves on! I seem to have two varieties. One is now almost through producing. The other, the one with killer thorns and huge berries is in the midst of producing.

So why go to all the trouble to pick berries such as these, over and over when they are obviously a lot of trouble?

Now I confess that the image below is not mine but the cobbler is identical in looks and OH SO EASY!' What my mother used to make!
