Where are you, Plums?  My brambles aren't finished flowering yet
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Deepest worcester-shoire.  we have hundreds of them!! have made crumble tonight (lost the incentive to do anything more adventurous) but they are even getting to the point where they are squidgy.

had a poor raspberry season but blackberries are going mad. must be the weird weather?

There were loads in the Forest yesterday, but our brambles around the paddock are still flowering!

Like the bramble vodka recipe - but Lisa, do you really need any more alcohol?  ;) :P

If in doubt, freeze. Thats my motto. One day in the winter you might just fancy a spot of jam making or a nice crumble and there you are!

 

Too many blackberries!
