Earlier this week the Guardian featured an article on foraging for food. I do this occasionally in the wild – picking blackberries, sloes, and juniper berries – but more frequently in our garden. Whilst not a complete wilderness, I take a relaxed approach to weeding and encourage plants to seed where they will. Most lunches we have a salad from the garden being a mix of what ever I find: rocket, lambs lettuce and mustard are staples as they self seed and grow all year round; mint, sweet cecily, marjoram, and fennel; in the spring baby dandelion leaves; and in the summer nasturtium leaves and flowers.
