Blackberry Picking and Making Crumble: An Autumn Walk

When I was younger I'm (almost certainly) sure that blackberries were only ready during the Autumn time once we had returned to school.  I remember (not so patiently) waiting for them to be ready to pick but nowadays I always spot lots of juicy black berries in the summer before I'm even ready to embrace autumn and pick them.  Now the kids are back in school I'm making an effort to make sure that all our precious free family evening time is spent wisely so one of our after school activities last week was blackberry picking (and scooting).  Read on to see our black berry picking walk and how we cooked our (vegan) apple and blackberry crumble.

Do you buy on a whim or do research before you make your purchases?  I spend a lot of time reading reviews of big money items before parting with my pennies (make that hard earned pounds actually) and as well as being an essential part of the process (it's also part of the fun of the "spend" (not to mention I happen to be the Queen of procrastination!)
