Why hello there foragers, friends, and fiends!
‘Tis been an awful long time since I posted anything in this blog. Not been doing much foraging with 3 feet of snow on the ground.
It’s been the most god-awful winter I can remember in almost 40 years. Brutal, horrible, and nigh-neverending.
I absolutely cannot wait for it to be over and for the Spring thaw to finally take effect. Though I’m not looking forward to the flooding, that’s for sure.
Let’s take a look at my garden…
Hmm… yea, that sucks.
So does that. Ok, no green stuff for me any time soon.
But… today is the 1st of March. This goram winter can’t last forever!
And when Jack Frost finally stumbles and the first shoots of spring pop up, I will be there to collect and nom them!
Wintercress and Wild Garlic will be amongst the first to pop up. Along with Dandelions and Garlic Mustard.
Just thinking about it makes my stomach growl. I’ve been resigned to a diet of ‘people’ food this winter, and let me tell you, there’s nothing worse for someone who’s used to eating wild. I’ve gained weight and feel like crap.
Time for a Spring diet of real food soon, methinks.
I hope all of ye are having a pleasant end of winter, and I certainly hope none of ye have to deal with more snow that I do.
All the best!
