Do You Forage?

Ask a Question

With fruit season on the horizon I am looking forward to plums, pears, apples, figs, raspberries, blackberries and cherries all within walking distance of my house. Now I just need to start hoarding jars!

You're really lucky to have those options close by. I'm having a similar problem with mushrooms from kits that I'd forgotten - started them off and can't keep up with how huge the crop is. My OH keeps asking why we are eating so many pickles and 'jar food'........... dried mushrooms, pickled mushrooms, mushroom sauce.......my recycling bin has never seen so few glass items. 😆

We have an abundance of Damson trees, plum, pear and apple trees and I don't eat any of these fruits.

We don’t have much, but we always look forward to picking the wild blackberries growing nearby when they’re ready

My dog likes blackberries and generally picks his own and surprisingly doesn't prickle his nose

rls aw cute! I hope he doesn’t make too much of a mess. I know someone who has a dog with a full coat of white fur and he always comes back with berry stains in the autumn months 😂

hspexy he's black but he has a grey muzzle now which ends up with a purple tinge when we get home. It does keep him regular 🤣

I wish, in London it's not really possible. I had blackberries in my previous garden but no anymore.

I don't go out of my way to forage, but if I'm going for a walk and stumble on a bramble bush I will happily partake.

I love foraging. There's some great wild garlic available right now which makes for a lovely pesto.

dawarwick I've picked some made a pesto, and recently bought a dehydrator and have some dried so it can last a bit longer
