Re: August Bank Holiday Sloe Picking 2012

I did not find any more sloes locally to replace the batch, not even a week or two after the original pick as the birds and maybe someone else finished the whole lot off. Well I thought it is time to test and guess what.... Wooow awesome, little more sugar needed I think but oh my goodness! Gave the...

I would guess that a simple replacement of berries would be still ok? or Maybe another berry or fruit I could cha...

Re: August Bank Holiday Sloe Picking 2012

The bottles I have already 'DONE' have been turned and twisted.

The clear bottle is as a purple bluey (sloe) colour as the light red coloured bottles are!!

TIA

Re: August Bank Holiday Sloe Picking 2012

Can someone show me a picture of the under ripe sloes that they see right now?

I am looking at bushes and still see so many sloes that have gone over ripe!!

Question is are they not sloes I am monitoring and picking?

Re: August Bank Holiday Sloe Picking 2012

Well there are no thorns on the bushes so what would that mean? Yeah they maybe a little ripe as I see the same bush this week are a little more bluer or turning darker but hopefully they will be ok. Did wonder if I should turn them into a fruit gin mix and add the last of the blackberries I see in ...
