Blackberries From My Own Bush!

We have several Blackberry bushes in our backyard. DH planted them about 5 years ago. His idea of planting is to dig a hole, plant the bush, give them a drink of water, and then to leave them to survive on their own! LOL! Last year we actually had a few berries (I think a total of 3!) and this year the bushes are COVERED with berries. I have been able to eat quite a few, but most have not ripened. Here's a group....they are HUGE! I took some pictures of the berries with my soap and lotion. This is my Blackberry Sage Soap.
It's so hard to take a full picture of my bottles..they are so tall!

Oh, those look so good! And they look beautiful with your products. Your post reminded me of spending the summer with my cousins in Oregon, picking Blackberries off their
bushes :)

They look luscious. My mom just made me some blackberry jam this week so I can relate. Congrats!
