Native North American Edible Plants
Blackberries and Raspberries, genus Rubus
Black- and raspberries are basically the same plant other than the fruit. The great benefit for them is that they’re incredibly hardy. In many parts of the US and the rest of the world, farmers buy specialized blackberry herbicide because the wild bushes pop up like weeds. They also have beautiful white, star-shaped flowers.

I am Ashley, an incredibly introverted 21-year-old environmental enthusiast.
I'm studying to be a marine biologist, but I live near the Great Lakes rather than the ocean.
I have a fierce love for all living things, a very broad sense of humor, and I'm probably too passionate for my own good.
Herein you'll find animals (especially creepy-crawlies), nature, science, art, some of my own photography, and probably more things about my personal life than you would care to know.
I'm an avid reader and music-listener, so suggestions are always welcome (you can check out my last.fm if you're interested).
I source all of my own posts unless it's my content, in which case I tag it "personal."
But that tag is littered with a bunch of other things as well, so peruse with caution.
