Mr. (or Mrs.) bear paid us a visit early Tuesday morning. There are four service berry trees around the house and they are loaded with ripe berries. I have been picking them – they taste like blueberries – or shaking the limbs to get them off so bears will leave them. be. He tired to climb up one and broke several branches. I would not recommend them for your garden! Note that I was inside the house with the iPhone on 2x.
