let the berries fall where they may and kiss my face

About 3 years or so ago a co-worker gave me a tiny little cutting from her blackberry bush and sent me on my way, wishing me luck and telling me that before I knew it I would have more berries than I knew what to do with.
Fast forward to today...
If you don't have a very green thumb I highly suggest planting a blackberry bush, this thing is out of control! ~C. threatens to chop it down on a daily basis because he's sick of mowing around it, although he doesn't seem to mind when I bring him fresh berries to try.
I finally learned that even though the berries might look ready, they really aren't until you can shake the branch and they fall to the ground, otherwise they will still be tart.
The ones in the picture are much larger than they appear and this is just from one days picking, we get this many, if not more, about every other day. And I would have lots more if a HUGE spider hadn't made itself at home underneath the bush.
And now, as promised a couple days ago, I present you with a product review.
My very first review will be for Kiss My Face Whenever Conditioner. I've been using it every day since the weekend and I really can notice a difference in the way my hair feels. It's very soft and silk and easy to run my fingers through... The only thing I don't really care for is that it seems to add thickness, and with hair that's already super thick it ends up a little poofy. But I would definitely recommend it if you have hair that's on the thinner side. Guess I should have paid attention to the part that says it leaves your hair fuller than ever before! LOL
Oh, and the smell is yummy, green tea and lime!
I found it at my local grocer in the organic aisle for $5.99 for an 11 oz. bottle.
All in all I give it 3 and a half stars out of 5.
Here is the online store description and list of ingredients:
"Organic Hair Care at its best. Made for daily use, Kiss My Face Whenever Conditioner restores the hair's vitality and replenishes lost nutrients. The organic botanicals and pure essential oils nourish and strengthen hair while improving manageability, diminishing tangles and split ends, leaving your locks flexible, fuller, and healthier than ever. The scent-uous Aromatherapeutic™ essential oil blend will leave you uplifted and exhilarated.

Maybe you could send me a cutting off of that bush. Guess that wouldn't make the trip, but I would love to have a blackberry bush. The only edible things in my yard are a satsuma (orange) tree and a rosemary bush.
