    No bears close, normally any way.
    They are in the Mts scarfing down blue berries.

    We had a good crop this year and it is a good thing because raspberries and strawberries were our only fruit this year. Enjoy them Dave.

    Ours are coming on strong as well right now, together with a bumper crop of strawberries. Wierd year for the peas though. It's been so cool this summer that we are still harvesting them. That's a first for late August here.

    Mine were looking great until the rain stopped. I think the plants will survive but I don't expect berries in large quantities until 2014...this year's growth got hit pretty hard too.

    I have a blackberry bush that I need to relocate this fall...it is growing like crazy. Ground is too hard to dig post holes right now....<>...

    The Black Raspberry plants around me did well this year. I don't do much with them so only harvest a small amount just for eating out of hand.
