The Golden Rules of Blackberry Picking

  1. It is a truth universally acknowledged that the juiciest fruits grow where you can’t reach them.
  2. Beware of the nettles. (Yup, stepped into them again.)
  3. Blackberry baby thorns buried underneath your fingernail sort of hurt. Quite a lot, in fact.
  4. When blackberry picking, wear sneakers. Not sandals. Sandals are a really bad idea, in fact. Unless you’d like to get your feet scratched.
  5. Bring bigger Tupperware pots. 🙂
