Not sure yet what it is, reminds me of maybe a blackberry or raspberry gone wild so will just have to wait and see.

While waiting for time to plant, we went out and found the seeds we wanted, mapped out the area, and then talked about how fun it was going to be. We also found a couple of rose bushes already on the property, so began trimming on them some, and just basically got ready for the upcoming season.
