Blackberry picking adventure!

The boys loved foraging in the woods this morning. We found so many blackberries, it was well worth the scrapes and nettle stings along the way. They ambled along carrying their tubs and picking as many as they could within their reach.


 
The woods and local area are bustling with brambles but many of the blackberries are left to rot as not many people seem to want to forage them.
 



 
 


So what are we going to do with them all? Here are some links to recipes:

As it's not quite Autumn yet the kids have decided to make ours into Blackberry ice lollies.
