A Berry Good Day

Today we harvested about seven quarts of blackberries, and there's still more to come.

This has been our most abundant crop yet, and yet we entirely neglected them this year, forgetting to prune them at the end of season or tie them up to the trellises. It seems our best successes comes through our own inattentiveness. You might say we are accidental gardeners.

This hearkens to Masanobu Fukuoka's idea of not doing unnecessary work in the garden, especially when Nature will do it for you.

She certainly did a fine job with the blackberries!
