Welcome Dave. :wave:
There are lots of good foraging tips on here - as well as lots of clever and friendly posters.
Actually, the weather doesn`t look too good for the weekend.
Cool and showery.
Mac and wellies might be needed.
Let us know how you get on.
We are stardust, we are golden, and we`ve got to get ourselves back to the garden.

Small world - we were in Ashton! Moved up to the north coast of Scotland 3 years ago. We're just trying to sell our house down there now our daughter's come up here too.

So if you know anyone who wants a house with a kitchen garden, and orchard let me know :wink: :lol:

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
