Please note the Canal walk at Clonony takes place on Sat 20th Sept, apologies for posting incorrect date last night, enquiries to Carol Bergin or here, thank you.
Now we are enjoying misty mornings and sunny days, perfect for Autumn’s harvest.This year that harvest is bountiful with really good crops of Damsons, Sloes, Crab apples and plenty of lovely mushrooms in the woods. A stroll on Saturday yielded Princes (Agaricus agustus) Hedgehogs (Hydnum repandum) and Amethysts (Laccaria amethystea) not to mention several different Boletes.
Saturday, Sept 20 th there is a canal bank at Clonony, if you are interested in joining please contact me or Carol Bergin ; firstname.lastname@example.org
I have been busy in the kitchen, bottled the dandelion and Raspberry wine and started a batch of Elderberry which I may use by itself or use to blend with some of the sweeter fruit wines, Elderberries have lots of tannins and so are good for imparting “vinosity” to homemade wines.
