It's been wonderful, I only have a small patch but so far I've eaten lots, gave some to my Dad, 2kg to my friend for jelly and will be starting bramble vodka. I reckon I'll get a good few more yet :)

My gardener was saying that her autumn raspberries are doing very well too. Later berries clearly liked the scorchingly hot summer. My summer raspberries, on the other hand, were most disappointing.

Was almost tempted to pick some on the Isle of Grain the other weekend - thousands of ripe ones, some of which I ate. But the sulphurous yellow smoke belching out of the power station made on think twice.

I had a really delicious blackberry in my garden until the gardener pulled it out... :(

Yes, proper bumper year isn't it? :D

I have blackberry vodka on the go as well as a batch of sloe gin. Roll on the 'C' word indeed! :cocktail:

I'm already looking forward to Christmas! :bounce: I must ask my mum how her blackberry bush is doing. Last time I tried to attack it I was attacked by wasps. I really do fancy blackberry gin! Maybe half a bottle with blackberries and half a bottle with pink peppercorns! :chops:
I either win, or I learn
