Insofar as possible, I like to take advantage of what the earth is offering. Here in California, in midsummer, it offers blackberries. Our backyard is covered in them: nasty thorny invasive weedy Himalayan blackberries. As much as I hate the plant for its invasive tendencies and prickly nature, I cannot hate the fruit. It makes a hell of a good cocktail.
