On my new allotment, I have inherited several "berry bushes" The raspberries are going mad but have produced some lovely fruit, I have discovered a black currant bush which is very nice, but there is a bush which I'm unsure of, the leaves are "wobbly" like an oak leaf and it has thorns, It looks healthy and seeing it is with the black current I'm sure It's a fruit. It's probably obvious to you all, but what berry has thorns? any ideas?

I baked some with a handful of herbs from the garden and they were absolutely lovely, I had only ever brought them already packaged for salads and I really had no idea how versitile these little burgandy guys could be. Thanks everyone.

Thanks so much, I'll give both methods a go and report back.

I planted some beetroot as seeds and was pleased when they grew so well, very pretty leaves too. Today i noticed a few beetroot shaped bulbs sitting loosly in the ground, so i pulled them up, they are a bit smaller that tennis balls. Trouble is, what do I do with them now? Do I boil them? I don't remember buying the seed even but I'm enjoying the novilty of beetroot, now I'd like to cook them up, not sure how though. (I'm new to allotment growing) Nene
