BlackBerry thorns

I went picking blackberries in shorts as it was sunny.  Schoolboy error.

Last year I went in a woollen jumper.  I can't believe how stupid either.

I often see people collecting blackberries that grow at the side of the road and often wonder if those berries are contaminated with chemicals from car exhausts (no puns in this post)

Mushroom picking season is looming too

Rascal bach, you have no idea how hard I'm laughing at your last post.  You are so funny.
I think Rascal should apologise for Wils - seriously!

I guess roadside blackberries will have some heavy metals on them, more on the busier roads.  That said I'd still pick blackberries from rural roads [above waist height though] and wash them well. 

But don't listen to me, lets ask SCIENCE for the FACTS

I think blackberries in the old zone 1, 2 and 3 to the east of Tinto chimney back in the day would have been nasty little berries.

I'd be a little more wary of mushrooms by the side of the road.  They are very terrior influenced I believe.  I'm not going to ask SCIENCE about that though, at my age it's good to have some preconceptions.

Never pick blackberries below knee height.  Dogs wee on them.

By accident or design?

It was cold in bed last night, then I discovered this morning that I had left the window open.  Autumn! I ask you.

Hand made hot water bottles no less. Now there's a thing.

Nice to see old traditions surviving in these days of innovation and  invention.
