The Great British Blackberry Picking!

This morning the kids decided that they wanted to go blackberry picking as there are lots growing where we live at the moment, and my daughter really wanted me to make a blackberry crumble! My niece and nephew were visiting for the day too so I thought it would be a lovely activity to fill the morning! (I refuse to pay for blackberries when they are so readily available for free in our area )!

Even though it was raining we donned our raincoats and headed out! Living in Wales, we live by the motto that ‘there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes!’

The kids had a fantastic time spotting the blackberries, picking them and filling their plastic cups up. We popped into my sister’s home on the way back as we were soaked through, and she made us some very welcome hot chocolate! We made a crumble afterwards with some of the blackberries and it tasted lovely. I always think kids eat so much better when they are involved in their food in some-way. Lovely way to spend a morning!

  1. Oh this makes me smile!! Especially the title . . . I grew up on Enid Blyton books for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with cousins who lived in England and wonder of wonders, they got to GO strawberry and blackberry picking, it was magical sounding to my young ears that grew up oceanside by the Arabian Sea, where salt dried on the walls and berries were a mystical imaginary food from Camelot . . . circularly I now live in the enchanted woods and blackberries grow out the back door! Life is often full of lovely surprises 🙂 A happy Thursday to you~~

    1. Thank you for such a lovely comment! I too was a little obsessed with Enid Blyton as a little girl. I have just recently introduced my 7 year old daughter to her books and she loves them too 🙂 Blackberry picking was one of our favourite activities through the school holidays 🙂 Love living here – we are very lucky! I am so glad you have those blackberries now 🙂
