Post by Sparhawk on 6th February 2010, 10:43 pm

Last Septemberish I went a picking in the hedgerow & came across a plentiful supply of lots of things so I picked adequate amounts of several different bits & pieces & brought them home, some of them I used & some I froze for later use...

Lady Sparhawk has been asking why she can't get as much food in the freezer as she used to so being a good Sparhawk I had a look...

I found a few bits from my foray & bit that I grew last year but among theses were a couple of 1lb bags of hawthorn berries, now I don't think I will get to use them quite soon enough Embarassed & wondered would they still be viable & so not compostable or would they be better off being put out for the birds...

You have lost me here, Spar. If they are frozen they should be viable, but if you are not going to use them, it is rather immaterial. Even if they are not viable they should be compostable. If they are not viable as compost I doubt the birds will want them.

Does that answer whichever bit was actually the question?

Sorry, what I actually was trying to get at was would they be viable as seeds & would I get lots of hawthorn bushlets in the compost or would they be better for the birds...

Make hawthorn wine for heaven's sake! Think about all the embodied energy invested from freezing them all this time - to waste them on the birds would be downright irresponsible.


Hawthorn wine...mmmm

Shocked Oooo, are you allowed to say "for heavens sake" on a Sunday... (Waits for the bolt of lightning...)

I do realise about all the embodied energy which was one reason that I was slightly embarassed about storing them...
I don't nesecarily think that they would be "wasted" on the birds.

Hawthorn wine this year is not an option,

1. I am still trying to create a wine making area in my workshop.
2. I don't have the time, I work in a full time job up to 12 hour shifts 5 out of 7 days per week.
3. I have other things that I need to do that that are higher up the priority list that would actually benefit all of the familiy...

Perhaps next autumn...

Thanks for the suggestion though it was a nice thought... whistle2

Ah, using them as bait to bring the birds within shooting range, eh? I like your thinking, young Spar.
