Good luck!  I've been fighting blackberry vines for 10 years now,
and the best I've been able to do is a momentary truce.  Last week
I pulled enough to fill a 35-gallon garbage can, from a bed about
10'x30'.  The one thing I haven't done is make up a roundup
solution and paint the individual vines with it using a paint brush.
Why?  Because I never remember that trick until I'm finished pulling
the d#!@ things!
