Maybe she's just weaning herself off the parental need to prepare and quaff the sloe gin in advance of her years....don't worry.....she'll come round in the end....big_laughbig_laugh

Barbara, I wonder if, despite being small, their flavour may be more intense - have you had a lot of rain - if not, it could be the reason for them being a little on the small side?

Difficult to know, really, as it isn't something you want to taste !!! big_laugh


We have had various dry spells this year, so that could be why they are so small. I have offered the opportunity to pick sloes to anyone who makes it to Devon to meet Michelle and Dan. Mmm, I could pick some and send them to you via Michelle so you could try them out!  whistle big_laugh
