Sloes - super early this year

Post by bugbear » 04 Sep 2015, 13:19

Went for a check; bushes laden with sloes, many with a beautiful purple bloom, but some ALREADY black.

People have already started picking quite heavily, in the more accessible areas...

Yes - they are ready right now. I just picked a load from Box Hill - 3 litres worth.

Going for more next weekend at the local Hurst Road haunt that everyone uses! Thousands of sloes!!!
