That's why I always err of the side of caution. As far as I am concerned the nightshade family are poisonous (I am not into taking trips), and I would only eat berries I know are safe. That does inclu ...

I always understood it was poisonous, so although it is pretty, always steer clear of it. I suppose I need to put signs up soon warning people not to eat anything from the wood unless they know it is ...

The weather here has been quite good. I haven't been able to go raspberry hunting in the woods again over the last few days, but think there should be some more. Saw the first of the early dewberries ...

We helped son to move house yesterday, and they have a bank and trees to the west, so rather hot there. Think it was still windy at home though.

It was quite windy here yesterday too. I put on a jacket to go down the road, but was still wearing sandals. Managed to do a bit in the garden as it was only sort of drizzle in the air, but spent a re ...

Had a reasonable picking of wild raspberries from the woods today; enough for a reasonable portion each for two people. They are not pure wild, as I think the birds have brought in seeds from cultivat ...

There are also break back traps; if they are in your garden that will be fine as you have to inspect/reset most. One variety available are Karnia traps, but I have heard tell of one that releases and ...
