Good news if you like apples!

 I just came across this article on The Guardian website:

 It seems that the weather this year has conspired to produce a better than average crop of British apples!  Good news indeed.  However, apparently the blackberries have not been doing so well.  I tried making blackberry jam last year from wild blackberries, but it didn't work out very well.  I was hoping to have another go this year, so I shall have to see what the local, wild blackberries are like.

I made a lovely blackberry and apple crumble, from home grown cooking apples and wild blackberries, after this post inspired me. It was a very tasty pudding and with the large quantities of apples that were collected, there is enough for a few more puddings yet!
