This lucky guy’s found some lovely “sloe berries” when foraging in the hedgerows, great for making that Sloe Gin
On a recent visit to the allotment I spotted sloe berries growing wild nearby. It was one of those moments of complete surprise, I was actually rummaging around in the hedgerow for things to use for decorating the house. Sloes are the fruits of Blackthorn, and they make a yummy gin. How on earth I missed seeing them before now I’ll never know, they weren’t spotted by anybody else – otherwise there wouldn’t be any left for me!
I didn’t have my camera to hand as it was only meant to be a quick visit to plant more garlic, I really wanted a photo of the berries for the blog before I started picking so I used one of those very posh camera phones (not mine). Somehow I managed to work out how to use it. A miracle for me.
It’s not a great photo (and I’ve made the berries look huge) but at least you can see what sloes look like…
