    Kilo of blackberries - the third from the same patch just up the lane.

    I'd love to go mushrooming but everyone is fiercely protective of their patches round here - the hamlet is known locally for its fungi.

    We are both reluctant to just go and a have a forage as we don't want to kill ourselves (although our neighbour will id for us) and hunting season started yesterday meaning there is every chance of being shot

    And 200g of sloes.

    I have put this in "recommendations" but for those who may not pick it up:-
    Alys Fowler The Thrifty Forager - The Works (today) £4.99. Half Amazon price. Not a book I would have ever bought on-line either having been "brought up" with Richard Mabey but tonnes of useful info, well presented.

    If people can't find it at all PM me and maybe we can work something out if I buy up the shop!
    "A life lived in fear is a life half lived."

    PS. I just don't have enough time to say hello to everyone as they join so please take this as a delighted to see you here!
