Scrumping Saturday

Taph and I are continuing our scrumping expeditations.

We had heard of some top secret, unsprayed, blackberry bushes, so after a quick recce on Australia day we came up with a plan on how to get these blackberries and how to get them home.

You see the problem here is that they are on an island in the middle of the Murrumbidgee river.

We packed in a boggie board, a Tupperware cake dish, some ockie straps (to hold the tupperware dish in place on the boogie board), shoes we did not mind getting wet, and of course, some swimmers.

These were needed as we had to wade, swim and
crocodile walk our way out to the island. We had to crocodile walk our way through the water as the water is too shallow, and the rocks t slimey to swim or walk.

It is early season so not many blackberries were ripe, but we were able to collect a enough to fill a litre container. We will be going back in a couple of weeks when hopefully more are ripe, and because of this, the location will remain Taph and my little secret.

But they were delicious on ice cream.
