A small team of us went out to pick blackberries on what was a very pleasant Sunday evening. Bitterns Field, Brent River Park did not disappoint. Lots were ripe and a lot more to come. Plenty for jam making and I’m sure we will be going back to get more soon.
There are plenty of early blackberries about it seems and it looks as though we should be able to have an inaugural pick on Sunday August 7 at 7pm. We’ll meet at Mayfield School, High Lane, Hanwell, W7 3RT and set off about 7.15.
We will almost certainly pick again – but we’ll decide on the exact date after this Sunday. We’ll bring some tupperware to collect the blackberry donations for WEN, but bring your own, too, so you can take some home.
