The wild blackberries are ripe now. Every evening I take old Chance out for a walk down the twitchen and pick blackberries. He gets a good walk and i get me free blackberries. I put them straight in the freezer in boxes and then in Winter will turn them into jam or juice (all strained cause me teeth don't like pips). Tell you folk wild sussex blackberries taste sweeter than cultivated any where in the world.

Blackberry Patches

Wild DOES taste better, and the work going into it makes it sweet!

As kids -- and as rotten as little kids can be -- we'd take the new kids to the neighborhood to the berry patches to see if they could figure the way thru for less scratches as a "test" ... so rotten.

But since it was a small neighborhood, everyone passed.

My Raspberry Plants grew this year,

I had tried growing them several times before, but this year they, at least 3 of them, lived!:)

The grasshoppers ate the few berries so I didn't get to see how they held up against the wild ones that used to grow back home.:(

I can wait till another year to get some!:D

Soon I will have more of them than I will know what to do with!:)

I may give Blackberries another try too!:)
