I read the ridiculous thing about brambles vs blackberries in the local
newspaper!!

What the heck does it matter???? They are brambles to me and I grow them
but I still know what blackberries are and don't argue the point!

Pah!

Oh and all the rest is not for me

There was a blackberry and apple tree in the neighbour's derelict back
garden that hung over the fence. It was a Bramley (cooking apple) tree
infested with brambles. Mum could pick the makings of a blackberry and
apple pie in less than 5 minutes and only about 20' from the kitchen door.

While I'm definitely outta any kinda foodie territory --pretentious or
otherwise--I do have issues with no 3. What's this "consumer
capitalism" crap? More like big ag and/or big pharma may kill you.

I gotta let big ag dictate my life cuz it's convenient/cheaper? Sorry.
I have a different agenda.
