Is it that time already?

My plan to include a personal phenological record within the pages of this blog begins: 09/07/09 First ripe blackberry (more than one actually), Reading.
Sadly I couldn't reach them :(


  1. Gosh, blackberries already? Wow.

  2. Found a few ripe ones a fortnight ago, but we're well away from the bulk of the blackberries being ready. Already picking cherry plums though.

  3. I've been trying to eradicate all trace of brambles from my garden and since next door is now inhabited and the owner removed all the brambles there are none around here, Strawberries are much less of a nuisance.
    Say blackberry to a kid and they'll think expensive business phone :(
