During our day at Lake Mendo, I couldn't help but notice the wild blackberry bushes brimming with huge juicy blackberries. Once I picked a handful, I couldn't stop. With the help of Matt and my mom, I collected a huge bowl full (you can't really tell from the picture above, but that is a big mixing bowl!). The rest of the weekend we ate blackberry smoothies, blackberry shakes, blackberry pie-- and of course fresh blackberries! Matt and I even brought some home.
