I knew the plane would be coming one day soon, I just didn’t know exactly which day and I didn’t want to be out and about when it did.
I used to love the abundance of blackberry plants on the ranch. Always plenty of fresh fruit during the hot summer months for a snack no matter where we were on the ranch. And while the massive blackberry clusters scattered throughout the ranch land is handy for berry lovers, it’s not so handy for cows.
Because cows don’t care much for blackberries…
or their thorns….
It was time to tame the berries. And the weeds
So instead of spending months on end spraying hundreds of acres of weeds and HUGE blackberry compounds… running the risk of bleeding to death amongst their sharp defensive thorns…
We decided to have them sprayed from the air in one morning.
