This is one of my favorite things about this area….wild blackberries. They grow around the perimeter of our yard, you could pick them all day and not get them all. Now my hands are stained purple and my arms are scratched like I was holding a wild cat, but its all worth it cause these babies are sweet as can be. And the bugs and spiders just add to the flavor…… I only wish I was kidding. Soon these will be jam and pies and frozen for milkshakes to last all year and then some. And blackberry milkshakes make great purple mustaches….. Hopefully by next post I’ll have something crafty to show you, but until then these “filler” posts will have to do!
