 We went out yesterday as the first foraging outing for Burbcrafters.  It wasn't a large group of us, but we had a nice time walking around Trent Park. I think next time I would prefer to go a bit more off the beaten track, as it was quite busy and well-managed with its clipped back hedges and the like.

There were blackberries and we got a few tubs worth, although not as many as there have been over the years. I think the lack of sunshine and rain or too much of both at various points over the summer meant they weren't the crop they could have been. 

Saw a couple of parakeets flying around, which we think seriously upset a local wren, who was calling away furiously. 

Although the group was small. I am not going to worry about it. I am not doing the group to gain a following, or fill some need to be on the Pagan scene, it is more a way of doing what I want to do, and seeing if there are like-minded people who wish to join us.

I'm pleased it went well! With the way the weekend went, I probably would have been better off joining you. :/ Hope to come to the apple farm thing though! That will be like old times back home for me.

Interestingly enough found what appeared to be some wild hemlock growing around my local wooded area. Really need to go out with an herb book one day!
