Be updating this soon...
Tea tonight was Risotto of St George mushroom, bacon, three corner garlic and saffron. Served with french toast. I can start doing piccy's of some wild (mostly) meals if people want to see a bit of cooking?
I'm hungry again now
With a bit of image enlargement I'm seeing yellow archangel, cow parsley and herb bennett in there as well, and possibly hogweed, though I'm not sure about the latter.Mr biG lebowski, is that really what your dinner plate looks like most nights?
If yes do you plate up for gordan ramsey?
I see silverweed [roots a fiddly edible] plantain [seeds good, leaves only palatable after snow IMO] cant make much else at the mo.
Brilliant thread, thank you all who've contibuted so far, learning lots here!Here's a few pics that I have been asked to contribute to this thread...
Bilberry, Vaccinium myrtillus, in flower. This has lots of regional names. Where I live it is called wimberry.

Gooseberry (almost certainly a garden escape)

And a little challenge. How many wild edibles can you see in this picture? I haven't arrived at a definitive answer myself, so it will be interesting to see what people notice. The pic is of vegetation at the side of a canal.

The butercup isn't edible, I can't see your blackberry unless you are seeing my Herb Bennett, and I would say the umbellifer foliage is cow parsley. The yellow archangel is top centre, 2 plants, with flowers a paler yellow than the buttercups.Brilliant thread, thank you all who've contibuted so far, learning lots here!
I've not been taking many pictures but out in the woods last weekend, I found a number of HUGE patches of Bilberries (Vaccinium myrtillus) that I never knew were there, the fruit was only just setting, but there might be a crop to go with the Wild Strawberries when they arrive!
In the pic I can see
Silverweed (Argentina anserina)
Buttercup flowers (Ranunculus repens)
Greater plantain (Plantago major)
A very small Blackberry plant (Rubus fruticosus) - is it? - bottom left corner
And is that leaf stage umbellifera to the top right Sweet Cicely (Myrrhis odorata) ?
Difficult to tell from the itsy picture ;O)
