This year seems one of the best for hedgerow fruit.
We’ve been gorging on wild cherries; as they came to an end the early blackberries ripened. Brambles are loaded with green berries and flowers are still aplenty so I think we’ll have a glut of blackberries.
On a recent walk I found a clump of wild raspberries (above) - Mrs M walked by, thinking they were unripe blackberries and I think others had too leaving me to eat my fill.
I also found a lone red current bush by a forest path, but I was too early as they weren’t yet ripe. Apples an the remnant of an abandoned small orchard are weighing branches to touch the ground, many more than I have on my own carefully pruned trees.
Sloes are abundant but need more time.
So, what have you found your way?
