Even more composting potential
Passionflower - fabulous climber or a thug?

Fruit for free

Over the last couple of weeks, I have done 3 times, something I havn't done since a teenager - Blackberry picking.  The footpaths and alleyways near to me have lots of brambles, and for the rest of the year, I walk past ignoring them unless they've grown into my way, - but for the last couple of weeks i've been walking with renewed vigour and with a pot in my pocket.  i've made 2 Apple and Blackberry Charlottes, Blackberry smoothies and stewed Blackberry and Apple.  William has also had more than his fair share of raw blackberries, and loved them.  i'm going out again tomorrow to start filling the freezer. So if you live somewhere where not all the road and alley side plant growth is tidy and cultivated, - don't forget to put a bag in your pocket to collect the spoils!
