The First Stirrings of Spring
Imbolc is 1st February and is a very special day for me for many reasons Anyway it’s also the first glimpse of spring. I was happy to find Wild Garlic shoots along with Lesser Celendine plants 🌱 This will soon ALL be covered in Wild Garlic and it’ll be the time for making pesto, focaccia and other goodies.

Two weeks after that first video about spring stirring, and the wild garlic is coming in mid February. The birds are more vocal than before and there was a TON of firewood!
Wild Garlic V. Poisonous plants
Take a look a wild garlic and some of the non-edible plants it grows near. Great to harvest in late winter/early spring!

Focaccia of course!
“I went on a Know Your Edible Plants Walk last Friday evening.
The perfect activity at the end of a busy week, I discovered lots of new facts, tasted several plants that I didn’t know were edible and looked at familiar plants from a fresh perspective.
Julie Russell is a wise and entertaining guide. She shared her knowledge, books and wild garlic pesto generously. Highly recommended.”Sarah McNicol

“..it was amazing. I really enjoyed it. In fact it made me feel great for the rest of the day…it was more than foraging….it was a gift of knowledge…and was even more than that. It was such a lovely day”Jo B
