More blackberries in the freezer

It took a fair while to clear the other side of the “blackberry hedge” of nettles and other obstructions (which have at least ended up in the compost heap). I think in total I’ve put five wheelbarrow loads of stuff into the heap from this one space over the last week, plus a couple of barrows of grass clippings from mowing alongside it.

That done though, I was able to harvest another 2lbs of blackberries, so I think I’m up to 5┬żlbs now, all in the freezer.

Having done that I thought I might as well go over the raspberry canes to see what was there that was worth picking. Not a huge amount, as it turned out — perhaps a pound or so. Those have gone into the freezer as well.
