It sounded so much nicer to say ‘Fall’ for some reason. This is unusual because American things rarely sound nicer to me. Anyhow, we left blackberry picking a tad too late this year……and so had a quick walk to nearby grasslands for a nosy this weekend. They are urban style, South London kind of grasslands but they are nevertheless very endearing. Bean particularly loves going for walks there because the tram lines run straight through meaning that trams appear from nowhere.
Despite it’s proximity to the trams, there was a glut of juicy blackberries and we managed to get enough to make a Blackberry and Apple Crumble and some Blackberry muffins. We also managed to stain our fingers and get a fair amount around our mouths (although obviously we didn’t eat very many at all!)
It was decidingly a more successful nature/ grow-your-own type experience compared to our previous carrot growing attempt earlier this week! Our very cute mini little carrots took 5 months to grow! We loved them all the same but thank goodness we weren’t relying on them for sustenance!
