Silly City Folk – Wild Raspberries vs Thimbleberries

Jul 26, 2014 by

What I originally thought were raspberry plants were not! They were actually thimble berries. Both are in bloom right now so we are getting quite a few deer in the yard enjoying the treats. I would attempt to pick them, but they’re pretty thorny but now I see why these berries are so expensive in the market.

You can see how similar the berries are!
