Blackberries are not just Phones

Yes! Once again it's the time of year for grabbing your kids and some buckets to get out into the fresh air for some serious blackberry picking.
The blackberries seem to be very late this year.
We have been watching the hedgerows for weeks now and only spotted some the other day. I think my jam was made by this time last year??
Anyhoo we had a ball!
 Into the forest ( the Enchanted forest across the road from our house)
and 3 hours later we had nearly
 6 kilos of gorgeous plump berries :O)
 Even our dog Jasper eats Blackberries!

How do you know if you've had a successful foraging trip??
Your hands look like this....

Your bucket like this :O)

And your Kitchen like this!!

You can find a recipe for making Jam here on my blog

Enjoy the Jamming
Till next time


  1. There's nothing like spending the day like that in nature with the kids. It's a great experience. Amazing the new words that are a part of our world today.

    Just found your blog. Love it! I'm your newest follower.

  2. I totally agree Sher and thank you for stopping by :O)
