Last of the Blackberries, but apples are still here!

From the title you would be forgiven for thinking about phones and computers, but no its fruit that’s the issue here.

This does vary according to where in the country you live, but tonight a friend and I went out to gather the last of the blackberries.

The season is now truly coming to an end with us both only getting about half a bowl each after about two hours of gathering. So if you want those lovely free fruits for your freezer you better be quick.

On the other hand apples are still in season. If you don’t have or have access to apple trees (which lets face it most of us don’t!), it is always worth taking a look around where you live. So many people just let their apples drop and rot, it is well worth asking if you could pick some. The worst that can happen is you get told no. I gain most of my apples from using this method, people are generally pleased to let you pick them as it saves them from having to clear up the mess of dropped apples. Go on give it a go, you’ve nothing to lose!
