SKopelos

A forage? More like a harvest!

Out and about on a sunny day for a drive and a walk in nature, I came across a disused goat pen station.


Therein, and all around it, my eyes feasted on a field of newly-sprouted pot herbs, young wild nettles and wild mushrooms.


I am cautious with mushrooms and tend to leave them be, but I foraged the nettles gleefully and will use them to add to stews, soups and pies. Plus, happily, there are more than enough to share with others.
