    Not much help with brambles, but if you keep gooseberries pruned to a nice open goblet shape you have more space for your hands so less opportunity for spikage. Bigger fruit too!

    Also a good concept to adopt when tying in Loganberries etc....

    Welding gauntlets also help

    Ted loves Gooseberries, one summer we had none because Ted ate them all straight from the bush!

    Amazingly he was entirely unhurt! With Ninja Ted skills who needs gloves?

    Mines a thorn-less Blackberry but every now and then a bramble sneaks in and I get scratched I've got the start paying more attention when I'm picking my berries.
