The garden is finally giving up some produce for the table. I missed purple sprouting of the shot. The chickens are beginning to lay again too all is well.

Garden April 10


Wild garlic


Even though spring is slow to get up and running in the garden the hedge row seems to be catching up that means the foragers larder is open. I’m no expert but I love how i can stride with confidence into a woodland and pick wild garlic or Ramsons as we call them. They are so easy to find and identify, normally the fragrance gives them away first. Just be careful that you’ve not picked lords and ladies which is not good for you, the leaf shape is different more heart shaped.

There is a million things you can do with them just use your imagination I’ve just had them on toast with cheese, easy tasty breakfast.
