    I suspect that the successor to homo sapiens will not be the cockroach but rubus armeniacus. It is pretty well indestructable but mounts a savage defence anyway.
    Blackberries form large, dense, impenetrable thickets that can limit movement of large animals, take over stream channels and stream banks, and reduce sight lines along rights-of-ways. Thickets increase flooding and erosion potential by out-competing deep-rooted native shrubs that would otherwise provide bank stability.

    Seems to be the only thing that can out-compete Scotch Broom (Cytisus scoparius). It's been interesting observing what happens with newly-clear rights-of-way. The SB seems to take over initially, but is eventually strangled by blackberry thickets.

    About a week ago, I went to visit a cache of water (several 5 gallon plastic buckets and two 30 gallon trash cans) that I collect during the winter and save for spraying.during the summertime. Bears had gotten to the entire lot, overturning (but not uncovering) the buckets and utterly demolishing the trash cans. Sigh. Time to start over.

    I thought that most blackberry pie involved cooking the filling, so not really "fresh". There are tamer varieties of berries; I like marionberry.

    You cook pie? No wonder mine haven't been turning out all that well.

    I built this nice thing:



    Tried to upgrade OSX Siri to Hi, Siri!
    Had to reformat my SSD and it took a whole metric day to restore everything.

    At least the stupid restore from 'Time Machine' backup nonsense worked as advertised.

    That upgrade was problematic for me too.

    Building this but I don't know what I'm doing at all. Hope my universal incompetence does not harm anyone.
