The blackberry vine in my yard looks particularly promising this year. I've had a handful of ripe berries so far, I'm hoping I can get to the rest before the birds.

Any ideas on keeping them away?


I also have an apple tree in my yard. I've eaten two in eight years. They're just so-so and mainly out-of-reach, The squirrels tend to eat the majority, though my dog Violet has taken to eating them as of late (and on the couch, bad dog!).
