Not to be confused with Barry, which is spelled with an “a” and not an “e”.

(Really, I just wanted to use this photo some how)

The berries are ripe and ready. I have picked enough, I think, to make seven 8 ounce jars of jam. I wish it didn’t take so many berries to make such a small amount of jam. All these years we have owned the ranch I have never gone out to “harvest” the berries and now I know why. Their plants are MEAN! If you just look at them wrong they will grab you with their evil thorns, but they do taste oh so good!
