Last night whilst out walking Alf the dog with the Boyf we came across a hedgerow full of raspberries. This particular spot is always overflowing with blackberries in late summer but I've never seen raspberries growing wild like this before. The hedgerow lines an allotment site so I assume that the bushes have escaped from someone’s fruit cage and grown like mad!
The school children had got there before us and munched their way through the easy to reach berries- no worries, I sent the boyf and the dog deep into the nettles in search of bounty.
We came away with a fair few, topped up with some of the strawberries from the garden we had enough for a jar of yummy jam!
I’m very pleased with my free hedgerow bounty! It was yummy on my toast this morning!
