Brambles – a Bumper Crop
David happened to be running past our favourite bramble-picking location a few days ago (no, I can’t tell you where that is), and lo and behold, they’ve already started – nearly a month earlier than usual. Not only that, the weather conditions we’ve had are producing a bumper crop: the berries are bigger and sweeter than usual. We picked 3.5 kg today (nearly 8 pounds). I’d better get the jam pot out and start cooking!
P.S. I forgot to take proper footwear along and was picking in my Flipflops – I can confirm that the nettles and thistles are also having a bumper year. I won’t do that again.
