Sloe Shortage

Spent some time this afternoon scouring the hedgerows at the back of home for Sloes, normally i can go out and pick 10lb or more in a couple of hours, but today, checking all of the Blackthorns, of which there are loads, yielded, just one solitary tree with fruit on it and these, even though it's still early doors, were already ripe.

Needless to say, there are no Blackthorns over the back of home now with fruit on them, as i took the lot, just under three pounds of fruit, including the manky ones, they are all now in the freezer waiting for me to go and get some Gin, when this has been purchased, i will defrost the fruits after their enforced bletting and get this years Sloe Gin on the go, im think, im also going to make some more Blackberry Gin and i might have a go at something a little bit different as well.
