A good year for the forager ?

Go down

default A good year for the forager ?

Post by Chilli-head on 10th September 2018, 10:16 am

My walk yesterday took me along an old Roman road, between lovely hedgerows. What an abundance. The sloes looked beautiful against the green backdrop, and there were huge blackberries, bright red rosehips, haws, and the hazelnuts were very tasty. Apple trees here and there too looked to have done better than my cordons - I think a full sized tree with a deeper root system would have coped with the dry weather better.

How are the hedgerows where you are ?

Sadly, there aren't many hedgerows along the A3 ....

That's a bit sad.

I noticed when out for a run on Monday that we have quite a lot of damsons around the hedgerows here too.

The blackberries are amazing this year and huge. I haven't noticed the sloes yet and the squirrels always pinch the hazelnuts before they turn brown. Rowan and hawthorn are full of berries. I've had my first ever decent crop of crab apples from my tree in the garden and today I picked 5lbs of damsons from my garden tree (there are loads more but anything beyond my reach when I'm standing on my builders platform are for the birds)
