Taming Wild FLorida Blackberries
Rubus argutus, native to South Eastern North America, is a member of the Rose family and produces delicious little fruits loaded with fat burning phytonutrients and cancer fighting antioxidants– score! Often confused with Wild Black Raspberry, distinguish them apart by a cone shaped hole in the fruit after picking it. Raspberries have this little hollow. Blackberries don't. One of the National Wildlife Federations top "Ten American Native Plants You Can Eat" grows wild in my backyard and if left unchecked, it can take over. See these links. It's possible to tame them.
I'm a mom of two perfect kids and two fluffy English Mastiffs named Lilo & Stitch. I love to research, write, draw, paint, plant seeds, raise butterflies and make things! My Etsy is all organic and handmade by me. Our family loves the outdoors and so it's important that I contribute to a healthy environment and clean water by choosing sustainable materials.
