I am a real saddo who is absolutely thrilled by the idea of free fruit.

I have noticed most indiginous tree fruit have born quite well - like the damsons etc

Where do you tend to find them? Are they near certain trees?

We discovered a huge amount of blackberries just behind our shed last weekend! I didn't even have to leave my home to enjoy a freebie! We had picked them, washed them and turned them into blackberry & apple crumble within the hour! Even Mr Kipling couldn't do it that quickly!

On wasteground or in hedgerows..you get scratched/stung a bit so wear long trousers and sleeves!

Less scratch/sting problems than usual because there is just so much ripe fruit hanging there

Viewers in Scotland might like to note that ours are unlikely to be ready much before October.
