Food for Free

Let me introduce you to a book which I have used and owned for about 30 years. If you are sick and tired of those pesky weeds which just grow and grow in the garden this time of year, then this book will give you a fresh way of thinking about them. For example, you can pick and steam chickweed, shepherds purse, nettles and even ground elder! Loads of exciting new ideas for hedgerow searching. See if you can find a copy.
And I couldn't resist showing you my new shoes!!!

I've had the book for about the same length of time. It's brilliant. Have you tried Pontak's Sauce - with elderberries? Wonderful.

Nice shoes, by the way!
