My Blackberries were Great This Year!

The blackberries hanging over my garden fence this year were the best I have ever seen.  For some reason they were twice as big this year and there were twice as many.  The bush was growing behind the fence and hanging over the top, right between the two swallow greenhouses.

So I picked a large bowl full and made them into a lovely blackberry and apple crumble which was delicious.  When I went out to pick some more about a week and a half later even more had grown.  So I picked these and had far too many I ended up giving some away.

I had to keep picking them before the birds ate them which would have got my two greenhouses in a mess as the birds tend to drop them anywhere.
