Freshness Test

Blackberries naturally ripen in early autumn. Depending on your location, the time in which the blackberries ripen will vary. Blackberries will also ripen sooner or later depending on the amount of sun they get. While it's possible to pick blackberries at your local park, etc, many health food stores and even regular grocery stores may have organically grown blackberries in their freezers. So if you want blackberries but are unable to pick them fresh, do look in the freezer section of your favorite grocery and/or health food store.


Important

As with all berries that you can pick straight from the bush, do remember that dogs and other animals like to "water the plants". As a result, to avoid the additional flavorings left by dogs and other animals, pick the berries higher from the ground.


General

While it is possible to find blackberries bushes near roads, I've always preferred to pick blackberries from blackberry bushes that are not near busy roads. Whether the following thought is accurate or not, I don't know, but my thoughts have always been that blackberry bushes near busy roads will have contaminants from the passing cars.

Picking blackberries is a great family activity. You can eat them as you pick them too! If you have lots of blackberries left over, you can always freeze them.

Hatha Yoga

Have you been wanting to do hatha yoga (stretching) but have found it either too difficult or you are not that flexible? If yes, and even if no, watch Jesse do some pure hatha yoga routines.

Unlike flow yoga, each pose in pure or traditional hatha yoga is held for a few minutes. While holding the pose, you focus the mind on the stretch. When you focus the mind, that's when you find silence.

Jesse is not flexible — never has been and probably never will be flexible like others. But it doesn't matter. In pure hatha yoga, how flexible you are makes no difference. It's all about loving the pose and focussing the mind on the stretch.

If you want to learn pure hatha yoga, now you can by following Jesse on a series of hatha yoga routines.

Follow me on Facebook and watch my videos on YouTube.
