Kudra - Yes. Bears. They're usually don't do anything too bothersome. Last year one flattened a compost bin. Left the other ones alone because they had some onions sitting on top. I'm unsure about the blackberries because they're rather borderline hardy for this area. I was thinking they might be worth the effort if they made good wine. I might still go for it.
Fairchild - We plan to make dandelion wine this summer. Hopefully it'll turn out a little more drinkable! LOL
Justsomedude - Did you use a recipe? And proper equipment? Just wondering, because it's not supposed to be that hard to get a drinkable wine. Really good wine is another story.
I have to transfer my very first attempt at wine into a secondary container tomorrow. It's still going to be a LONG while before I'm drinking any.
