A weeks worth of blackberries

Every day I pick about 15 blackberries and add them to my stash in the fridge.  I thought I was saving them to make cobbler, but I think I enjoy them more as a snack on their own.  No cooking needed and check out these stats!!!  "This fruit has multiple macronutrients — high dietary fiber, heart-healthy polyunsaturated fats (especially in its numerous chewable seeds), low overall fat content, and protein combined with high micronutrient levels of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. Blackberries are a particularly good source of vitamin A, potassium and calcium."

The intense heat here seems to be taking it's toll on my blackberry bush.  I'm going to go fight the birds for the last few berries of the season.  They yell at me every time I go out to pick the berries.  It is pretty hilarious.

Stick a plant in the ground, wait a year and then watch them take over your yard.
