    Still some bilberries around too – Got a pies worth from brimham rocks at the weekend.
    (then grazed blackberries from Brayton Barff the next day).

    Years ago, they would have been picked clean. People don’t seem to bother these days!
    Thankfully my boys are ravenous foragers 🙂

    Yeah, I know – totes! The blackberries have been helping me out on the last few miles back to home at a bush I keep visiting each week now, having bonked out a tad. Scoffing loads of them works really well TBH.. 😀

    Only pick ones at least 7ft off the ground.
    I’ve peed on the rest.

    Has anyone else, like myself, stopped off to recently enjoy the fruits of this fair nation, free blackberries now ripening on brambles in hedgerows at the edge of fields? mmmm yum yum. A good tip: rather than pick and pop one by one, pick a few and collect them in your free hand then pop them all in your mouth at the same time. Gloriously juicy and gorgeous. mmm yum yum. Watch out for maggots though!

    The lanes around Claife were riddled with them this weekend. Wish I hadn’t bothered packing so many snacks.

    Have an enormous overgrown bramble patch in the paddock. Favourite food of our 3 yr old right now. Ok lad lets go pick some brambles. Strange he never seems to come back with his bowl full but always has a mucky purple face/hands/t-shirt to go with his smile.

    Loving it and contemplating trying to freeze some and maybe make some jam when I have more time.

    Just a quick warning about eating that other tempting trailside treat, mushrooms- this can be perfectly safe but you need to be very careful which ones you pick, smurfs can be dangerous when angered.

    Blackberries are just starting to appear here.

    But the forest smelled ace a few weeks back with wild raspberries. Shame they were all intermingled with nettles. Bumper crop for sure.

    Hectares of wild garlic too at the right time of year. Ace smell too.

    I’m so lucky that outside my workshop are raspberry canes brambles and blackthorn bushes with cherry treesaand apple trees aroubd the corner.

    Our apple trees have gone mental this year, I picked around 20 from one tree and it doesn’t look any different.

    We’ve had raspberries and blackberries so far, the raspberries were really short in season though.

    My missus found a maggot in one she was about to eat.
