I thought it was time I at least put something up on here. I have been so busy over the past month that I rarely even get time to check my e-mails, let alone add anything new to the site. This won’t be forever; I have lots of new wild foods I’m going to be adding, along with more tutorials.
Before I go on I would like to stress yet again, that I will add to the ‘how to make a catapult’ tutorial when I get time. I get so many e-mails from readers about this particular article. Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate contact from the site, but I don’t appreciate mails from the minority who think its fine to be rude and pushy because it’s not yet finished. I pay for the hosting of the site, the maintenance and the hours of work it takes to keep it going as a free resource for people, which in time will become a strong point of reference for bushcrafters and those wanting to learn about wild food, and nature in general. So please be patient, I have a very busy schedule and will add to it when I find the time.
October is one of my very favourite months. I love the traditions associated with it, and especially Halloween. My sloe gin is looking good enough to drink already and I have a good 4lbs of sloes in the freezers should I wish to make anything else. The tomatoes in the veg patch are still turning red; I must have had several hundred from one plant! The butternut squashes are not doing too well, but as it’s still so warm they are growing fast! My herbs which I have been growing for my autumnal cooking on the other hand have been destroyed by our new rescue dog, so I was a little annoyed about that, but nothing much I can do now. I have a few left so will have to make do with those.
I would like to remind the readers that this question in game two (just for fun) http://naturessecretlarder.co.uk/test-your-knowledge/game-2-just-for-fun.htm has had many good attempts, but still no correct answer! So please feel free to give it a go.
That’s pretty much it for now, but I will add some stuff soon, some has already been written up, it’s just a case of finding time to get in on here, and take some pictures!
Catch you on the trail
