Wow! Our neighbor gave us twelve cuttings from his blackberry plants. He said, "It's easy. Just bury them and keep them wet.

We watered daily. Necessary in our sandy soil, though tough on the water bill.

We mulched with leaf litter from my friend's yard. We waited, and waited. They got more and more shriveled. But, can you see the touch of green at the base of that cane?

Wow! Leaves! Maybe we'll get berries in a year or so. Yum, blackberry pie. Blackberry jam with hot biscuits. Yum.
