Thanks gents

July/August are great months for foraging plantain (no relation to the bananas)

Its a common weed that you can find absolutely everywhere, it can replace kale/spinach in most recipes and the young leaves are nice and tender in salads, the older leaves are a bit stringy and better blanched or sauteed with butter. You can eat the seeds too. Also a good herbal remedy for insect/bee stings.
Only problem is the damn slugs love them.

The forages mortal enemy

Fascinating post as always! Yet another edible vegetable that I had never even heard of.

What really has me jealous is your son eating those wild raspberries. They are my favorite fruit and I've never had wild ones.

Thanks,
He's in the dog house for loosing his new Swiss Army knife on the third time out, we spent more time retracing our steps yesterday than we did collecting hedgerow goodies.
It wasn't his fault really it must have slipped out of his pocket in the long grass when he was catching dragon flies, I should have clipped a quickdraw on his beltloop.

Raspberries grow amazingly well in our climate, ive had a couple of kilo,s out of the woods this year and at least twice as much from my folks garden, there's not that much difference in flavour, so your not missing much, the home grown variety are huge compared to those found in the wild.

Aw no, that's too bad! I remember you got that for him quite recentlyOuch

Lucky you!  You are making me even more jealous by telling me how many you can get. I used to eat fresh picked raspberries from my grandfather's garden in Vermont when I was a kid, but that was over 15 years ago. The climate isn't exactly the same as yours, but it is closer to yours than mine here in socal. It's not just the difference in flavor, but the freshness and accessibility that was wonderful. 

I'm really tempted to go and try to pick some next time I go to EnglandLOL

Mini-Soul landed a double figures mirror carp today and his mom was on hand to record the event.



Not quite ready... and we have no landing net


The hand lines are no use whatsoever with fish of this size, they just run and snap your line.
He's using a 2ld test curve 6' Nash stalker rod with Shimano Baitrunner.



After a stroke on the head...

Off it goes..on its way

I caught a very insignificant common carp Disapprove

When life hands you lemons... just start foraging the slugs themselves. It's just extra plump escargot. When I was a mini, the neighbor kid ate a slug. Chewed it and all. He seemed to enjoy it, and that was in the raw.
My coat has nine buttons, but I always fascinate.
