Its been a great summer for foraging so i thought i would bump the most neglected thread on the forum.
A thread so unashamedly disregarded even a mother failed to support it. tut tut tg!

After the recent glut of wild raspberries, cherries, bilberries ect.... its now blackberry season so off the men folk went on their intrepid quest for the humble brambles.




We found a wasp nest in the roots of an old tree and poked it vigorously with a stick.
We ran around waving our arms in the air.

Brushed aside the wildlife

Admired the fruits of our labor

The hunter gatherers returned home and presented the fine bounty to the soul lady/pie maker.

In time-honered tradition I would have put the pie on the windowsill to cool but they have been going missing ever since hollows convinced me to draw these strange symbols on our gatepost.





Blackberry and apple pie....

The wild strawberries over here don't grow much larger than your little finger tip but have 100x more flavour than those massive Israeli polytunnel nonsense that just taste of water.
Ive found a few but they are near a collapsing barn with an asbestos roof so i stayed well clear.

Exactly our experience taste wise, the wild ones are amazing. We found the greatest concentration in drainage areas from steep hills and forest roads, in other words not totally boggy, but pretty close:

Even the berries that don't look ripe tsted better than mega store bought:

A couple feathered friends we saw
A Great Horned Owl
A Mexican Scrub Jay combining bath time and lunch time (genius!)
I looked all over but couldn't locate the raspberry pics

I love apple and blackberry pie or crumble, especially with vanilla ice cream.

We get wild strawberries in our small garden in London. Not that many but the kids love them and as you've rightly pointed out, they're tiny.

Abundant wild mint in flower.
Along with chewing a few leaves (which is always nice when you haven't taken a toothbrush) I like to rub the oil into my hands to make them smell minty.

The last of the seasons Bilberries always nice to munch on a hike.
More tart than a blueberry more akin to a huckleberry.
