Bramble Time!

Several P1020101years ago therP1020103e used to be almost traffic congestion on this little lane with the amount of Black Berry pickers, now it seems there is just us and a few of the campers.

This year they are plentiful and so easy to pick here. I use them to make a Mrs Beaton recipe for seedless Blackberry and Apple Jam[ apples grown in the garden] which is wonderful on toast for breakfast it also makes great jam tarts that the grandchildren adore.
