Into the swing of things

Nature is really getting into the swing of things.There has been a plethora of wonderful plants bursting into life over the past 8 weeks. When it comes to choosing what to put in my basket and bags for eating I feel blessed and spoilt for choice - fresh young, vibrant greens, colourful, scented blossoms and at last the long awaited St Georges mushrooms!! Hope you are all enjoying the seasonal variety, lovely food and a happy harvest.

St Georges Mushrooms

St Georges Mushrooms have been slower in appearing this year compared to last year (warm, wet conditions). The long cold winter, followed by more recent warmer, drier weather hasn't provided the ideal growing conditions. However, at certain sites St Georges are putting in an appearance and hopefully this weeks forecast of rain later in the week will allow them to flourish. Fingers crossed and happy foraging.
