Blackberry time everyone they are free and they freeze well !
Annoyingly the farmer who's field we collect from has cut the hedge that surrounds it. But I'm sure we can find another. Good for feeding through the winter.

Not just Blackberries, Elderberries and Mountain ash berries all free and natural and freeze well, either cut or snap off the cluster at the stalk. with all these foods there are tiny insects dont worry about them stick them all in the freezer.
