It’s the end of blackberry season, by the way.

This means that if you are tempted to buy an expensive batch in the grocery store, say ‘No’ and visit a U-Pick farm instead.

Or, if you live in rural England, go on a walk. They’re hanging on fences everywhere as common as dandelions.

You may think, initially, that blackberry picking is not worth the pain.
You may think that finding a U-Pick farm takes too much effort, or that fighting spiders, mud and stinging nettles is—quite simply—idiotic for a basket of berries.

However, afterwards you will notice that ten pounds of blackberries are more exciting than a little tray from the grocery store.

You could make blackberry smoothies every day and still have spare money for straws!
{Woah!}
