We have been working often in the garden area of our back yard. It has been neglected for about 5 years so the Blackberry bush that was there had decided that it would take over the entire garden area..... all by it's self.
And I must say it was being quite successful at it...until we arrived on the scene!
The above photo was taken in November of last year. So as you can imagine, the bush has grown quite a bit since I took this picture.
We spent many afternoons out in the garden cutting away parts of this giant bush. We have more than enough scares to prove our work. But the area is starting to look like a garden area again and I am excited to get the area plotted out for our spring garden.
Below is a photo of a few stalks that we chopped from the wild run away plant.
Okay the photo after this one can give you a better idea of the real size of the stalks from this crazy plant...
Yes, that's a dime to help show the actual size of the plant we have been fighting. But we have finally won the battle!!!
The ugly, prickly plant is GONE!!!
Of course, Mistaya is very excited about all the new smells that are in the areas of the garden that she couldn't get to while the giant Blackberry bush was ruling the entire garden area.
There is nothing like Puppy Happiness!
