MY FIRST HANDFUL OF GARDEN BLACKBERRIES
After mowing the lawns this morning, I began pruning the long brambles that were growing out of the hedges here and there. On one branch I noticed that there were a couple of blackberries that were almost ripe. So I thought I’d better check on the area of my garden that I have allowed to run wild and where the garden blackberry bushes grow.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered that there were now a handful of blackberries ripe enough to eat. I’m certainly going to have a bumper harvest of blackberries this year, but this handful are more advanced that the rest on the bushes. I will have to see how ripe they are on the hedge rows while I’m out cycling. I love home made blackberry pie, do you? 🙂
