Went black-berry picking. The most amazing crop I’ve ever seen – definitely a vintage year – large, black, sweet and masses of them – food for free! In a role reversal of the annual Nouveau Beaujolais celebrations maybe we should start the Nouveau blackberry race to Paris with the first blackberries of the season. Perhaps the Blackberry phone company would sponsor it???!!! We could arrive in Paris to great acclaim and strains of the Marseillaise as we sweep in triumph down the Champs Elysees bearing a loft our tupper-wear plastic boxes and re-used Sainsbury and Marks and Spencer bags crammed with shiny "wine dark" blackberries.
