>     In my travels around Tilden, Nebraska, I seen 9' marijuana in the ditches so I'd be surprised if some ditches didn't have blackberries too. Blackberries thrive on less water than your marijuana.

I don't have too much experience growing marijuana, Jim, but I thought 
the problem would be winter temperatures (and lack of snow cover), not 
moisture. After all, I need to irrigate most of the plants I grow, at 
least to some extent.

But the bigger problem, I guess, is that I've never eaten a good 
blackberry. As I said, the ones I've bought were like little lemons. And 
considering that I'm rapidly running out of room to plant anything new, 
I haven't been inclined to make room for blackberries.

But I've certainly heard other people rave about them (and maybe they 
wouldn't be as bad as clove currants - heh, heh).

domestic, on faith rather than evidence - faith that his own instincts 
are divinely inspired, and any evidence that contradicts these instincts 
may be ignored or even suppressed. - Victor J. Stenger
