Blackberry bonanza

blackberries Sept 13

The blackberry crop is usually guaranteed to give a good return. Brambles grow just about anywhere and they very rapidly colonise new ground. This year, the crop is about the best I have seen in decades. It is enormous! It is later than it has been in recent years but if you want a free source of food, get out there and start picking. Yesterday I picked elderberries to make jelly but I could see just how abundant the blackberry crop is. I'll be back to pick it later this week.
