I think there is one in the food & drink section. Not really done a lot this year, just mainly scrumping the odd apple whilst wandering :wassnnme:

Nuts are in season atm though so may go and collect some soon. Gonna be a banging year for mushies too I reckon

I used to have a great book on foraging - Food for Free by Richard Maybe.

I wish an identification guide to Brazilian fungus existed, there are tonnes of mushrooms year round here.

edibles and libs seem to be a bit late this year because of the nice weather (where I live, at least)

The weather has started feeling more mushroomy recently though, so I think that's about to change.

I picked a load of blackberries, I am in the process of turning them into wine. I have 3 gallons fermenting in demi-johns at the moment.

Rose hips are ready and Hawthorn berries ripe, I think the liberty caps will be late due to the nice weather/dryness of the autumn so far.

As Hughie says, also damsons, elderberries, sloes etc are all ready, pears and apples are also ready. I did sloe gin the other week, mushrooms seem late as Hughie mentioned, Giant puffballs are over but lots of others to come. Could be a good year for nuts like hazel and co

Recently had a forage and got loads of field blewits which made a very tasty breakfast served with scrambled eggs and spinach. Also got some hazelnuts ,brambles (jam) and Rowan berries that'll be made into jelly for any game that finds it's way to my dinner plate, probably in the form of duck and goose! Best of all though about 4kg of Sloeberries. The sloeberries are currently steeping in gin and sugar and will be gulped down at Xmas time , joy!
