now’s the time of year to collect thistle seeds for tinder. also, thistle leaves and roots are edible, just strip the spines from the stems first and they are pretty tasty. obviously you want to have already got to the leaves earlier in the year, but the roots are best in autumn. go enjoy thistle bounty!

dandelion root coffee

made for my friends birthday. harvest dandelion roots, chop fine, dry roast or fry until brown, grind until fine. one teaspoon per cup makes a lovely brew,

coiled grass basketry, today with ‘native hands’

mildred, my amazing chicken, passed away this weekend. she was an ex-farm hen sentenced to death about 5 or 6 years ago when she was just 2 years old, as all farm hens are when their eggs develop slightly thin shells. In the years since she has brought so much happiness to so many people, joining us for breakfasts where she stole our toast, tea and porridge, pottering around the gardens she lived in, and generally fossicking and eating snails. she had a penchant for pecking buttons on clothing, playing in compost, and dustbathing with the neighbourhood cats.  she was never averse to a cuddle. most notably this year she fought off a fox. she has probably had more comics drawn about her than any other chicken ever. she was the most remarkable chicken i ever met and i loved her very much.
