Tasty blackberries

This isn’t too bad for a first grab at the blackberries after taking a few pictures of them yesterday. We had a nice thunderstorm this morning, about six-tenths of an inch. That’s what we needed. Still, we’re about two inches short of the monthly average for August at this point. And, by the way, I even thought of a good thing about the big seeds in these blackberries. Unlike the smaller seeds in the raspberries, these blackberry seeds don’t get caught between any of my teeth. How’s that for finding the silver lining? :-)

A resident of the “30 square miles surrounded by reality,” I spend most of my time teaching economics and statistics to undergraduate students. I enjoy, naturally, economics and business, but also science (I was once an astronomical observatory assistant), politics, photography, food, travel and sports. Madison has grown quite a bit since 1978 when Governor Lee Dreyfus made that remark. According to Wikipedia, Madison is 67.3 square miles of land and 16 square miles of water.
