Petals from the Past, Dr Powell, has a good video on blackberries. My plans are to put some in the ground within the next year. Other than that, mostly dry here. In the last 10-15 years the rain fall has change in about a 2-3 mile radius of where I live. Around here you just about have to water your garden at least once or it'll either die or won't make. I use to write on the calendar when it rained outside of the 2-3 mile radius and compared it to my rain. 7 to 1 was the ratio I got. Oh well, adapt, improvise, and overcome.
