Blackberries anyone?

Yep, blackberries the size of a spoon!   Can you believe how big these are? 
These berries can from our garden.  They are just fabulously (I don't know if that's a real word or not) yummy, tart and sweet.   The bush is huge and growing great.
Which is amazing since I can't even keep silk plants alive. 

Last year we only got a small bowl full of berries, but this year we are picking large bowls full at least once a week.  I've made a double batch of  freezer jam already and boy oh boy is it delicious!!!!
Note to self: if I want a whole lot of berries picked, don't send the boys to do it.
They eat more berries then they bring in the house.
Note you:  Don't forget to comment on Aug 20th post to enter to win a  Halloween bundle of fabric and magazine. Contest ends Saturday evening.  Good luck to all!
