Here are some lovely images from my foraging challengers. I’m so impressed by their efforts!
Hannah (who is working on illustrations for my books!) has been sketching her finds whilst wandering Amsterdam.
Peter is currently trying to ID this mustard type brassica.
And Elodie has been considering the edibility rating of thistle…
Dana has found a herb she has known about since childhood (not for eating) – greater celandine / stinkende gouw – with the yellow flowers. It is a traditional topical remedy for several skin complaints.
Is great to see people branching out from the usual foraging favourites!
I was at work today so took a lunchtime walk past lots of green spaces. Here’s some purple deadnettle growing opposite the Amsterdam Hilton.
