Almost St Patrick’s day, I’m off to Terryglas to forage the hedgerows and then join the ceili in the street. Despite the artic winds blowing at the moment the spring flowers are braving it and there are lots of Gorse blossom about, how about a little blossom wine? no tax on that! Also the Garlic Mustard is showing in the hedges along with new shoots of the Vetches, Dandelions, both leaves and flowers, Ramsons garlic, Tricorner leeks, Pignuts, Nettles and Ground Elder so plenty to forage for whether its a salad, green veg or homemade pesto or wine.
So lets get out and get gathering.
