    Sysop, those are some big berries. We have picked a few dozen off the bushes we planted here at the house last year. I've picked a couple of quarts off the patch over at the old house.

    I found one in my tomato patch the day I picked the first tomato. I sprayed the one time. Haven't seen any more, but it's about time to spray again. And over at Mamma's too.
