Seasonal adjustment

It's that time of year again.

Out with the children at the weekend to pick and fill our first tub (see Rogan's post for more info).

Have made a slight change to the header.

debra said...

how do you make a bramble crumble? Is it like a cobbler? or a crisp?

Kim Ayres said...

Dr Maroon - the day ends in a Y, so it's to be expected. Still a bit pissed off about the Haemochromatosis, but other than that I'm not to bad thanks.

Atilla - thank you :)

Debra - check here

I see Rogan has spotted the maggot problem, but I see no mention of the height above which brambles should be picked.I should say over 3 feet, perhaps slightly higher in the vicinity of great danes and motorway laybys.
I can retire now knowing my public duty is seen to. Hope you don't have to go out and repick the entire crop.

Hope you didn't get wet.

Sandy - don't worry, from the age of 3 Rogan was taught to avoid picking the ones too low down. And we never take them from the side of the road.

Pat - we're fair weather bramble hunters, or at least not-raining bramble hunters

Excellent header.

Amy said...

Happy new season. Raspberries are almost ripe (again) in middle America.

Kim Ayres said...

Birdwatcher - I've a funny feeling you suggested the title last year and I remembered it when we were out picking them this year

Amy - mmMMMmmmm... raspberries...

Conan Drumm said...

Ah, the return of the brambling, bearded One! Almost ripe here but your's would be a little earlier being more northerly/easterly.

Hi all. This is Estefania writing from Spain. I'm working in a new educational tool for parents with children wiith Down syndrome. Actually it's not just me but a group of down syndrome organisations from all over Europe such as Down Foundation Zaragoza, Down fundation Athens and Down Foundation Romania.
The project is called PoD (Parents of Down) and its main aim is To design, develop and implement a new training tool for family members, professionals and volunteers to help stimulate and educate persons with Down Syndrome throughout their lifetime development.
This tool will be a DVD and a CD with information recorded in testimonial, expert advices and even Down syndrome people talking about their onw experiences.
We are looking forward to have an innovative way of letting parents know those things they don't or solve questions that can come up at crutial times. We'll focus in three areas: early intervention, teen age and adulthood.
I'll kidly ask you if interested in visiting our web blog to get more information.
The final tool will be finish next year and it will be delivered for free.
Hope you like it!!
