    Chanterelle woes

    I've been concentrating on my foraging a lot this year. The past few weeks has seen a lot of fungi action- and my research and time out in the field is getting justly rewarded, and I've had some lovely samples of edible fungi. One Fungi I've not come across so far is the chanterelle. It seems...

    HOTW and chorizo roll

    In honour of TeeDee's old foodie posts, I thought I'd try an get an arty shot of a very simple unassuming meal. I found my first hen of the woods yesterday, after trying a little fried last night and having no upset or reaction I fried the rest up until crispy in butter with some chorizo, then...

    The penny bun drops... (pic heavy)

    I've been seeing a few mushrooms appearing recently, particularly boletus and amanita species so I thought with all the rain the one thing that will be doing well are the shrooms. So I headed off to a public but slightly lesser known wood (mainly due to the lack of parking and crossing a bunch...

    Winter hammock setup

    So last December I had a night out in the hammock in -6, and I was cold for the majority of it- nothing life threatening just got the chills every few minutes and consequently struggled to sleep, not that I was surprised by the result. I had my usual set up, a snugpak elite 4 that has lost a...

    Withdrawn Trangia 25 full/part

    Hi guys, thought I'd check here before I purchase elsewhere. I'm after a full 25 kit for 35 quid all in, or the 1.75 pan, lid and handle for 20. I'd rather buy 2nd hand if poss. Likely to be a stretch I know but worth asking, cheers!

    Gorge hook

    I've been meaning to have a go at carving a few of these up to try at the coast, they ended up a bit rough but they are super fiddly. I'd imagine picking the right size is an absolute fine art, especially for big fish. I can see the small one landing me a few flatfish though. Anyone else...

    Thoughts on Zoo's

    I visited a popular zoo today, not the first time I've been to a zoo mind, but everytime I go as fascinating as it is to see such a variety of incredible animals, I can't help but feel sad for them. Some actually look a bit sad or atleast stressed to a degree. I think they are a great...

    Foraged plant fertiliser

    Has anyone used any foraged plants to make homegrown liquid fertiliser? I've recently been turning up the heat on my foraging education, particularly plant species and this week I happened across a plant called common comfrey, Symphytum oofficinale, this beast: Now just to clear it is only...

    Umbellifer specific book reccomendations?

    Starting to get my head around a handful of the common umbellifers but I'd like to get more confidence in my ID skills of them and the other foraging books I have just don't get close enough for my liking. Are there any good books people can reccomend? I've come across umbellifers of the...

    The "what is that plant?" thread

    I thought I would open up this thread as we have one for mushrooms but none for plants weirdly, it's something I'm planning to do a lot of this year (already have to be honest) and theres no better time to be learning what plants are around. So I'll get the ball rolling with a few that I've...

    Immature hogweed tips

    Hi folks. I'm hoping to munch my way through a lot of hogweed this year. I know it can get mixed up with giant hogweed, and I'm familiarising myself with the differences in identity on the nature plants, but as we are heading into spring, are there any good ways to tell the difference between...

    Tung oil

    I'm going to buy some tung oil, I've seen some liberon stuff that's about a tenner for 250ml posted. They have a 'pure' tung oil and a 'quick dry' version, any idea which is better? I'm leaning towards the quick dry as it will be used on cups, spoons and bowls for food, but I have no...
