Blackberries for free
Thursday, August 29, 2013
Yesterday evening was one of those lovely late summer evenings when the sun shines and is warm but not too warm and we went out walking. After about 15 minutes we came across a blackberry bush with the plumpest ripest blackberries I have seen in years.
We returned home and collected bags then off we went to this fabulous abundance and plucked just enough to make ourselves a lovely crumble for supper. The rest we left for the next walker or for the birds to enjoy and we will maybe return over the weekend and pick some more if any remain.
We found it really strange that it was just the one bush that was so loaded with the lovely plump berries, we passed many others but they had just little dry looking berries with no appeal whatsoever. Mind you, the nettles were also growing extremely well where this bush is and I had two very painful little fingers but never mind, that was the best crumble I have eaten in years and even better because the fruit was free.
