I think there has been far too much ranting going on here.. I apologise.
Instead, some simple pictures of my recent forraging finds. Raspberries, as we’ve seen already; blueberries, the tiniest wee things ever! I’m not going to get much jam from these babies; and rose hips, which I picked before learning that they are meant to be bright red and puffy. And that they aren’t to be picked before the first frost of winter (probably the end of this month!). I am yet to learn how to best utilize these. Jam? Tea? Dried, for a Vitamin C packed snack? The hairs and seeds inside are a little daunting. Any suggestions for how to use my next, patiently awaited bounty?
