Yesterday was the first of this year’s walks for Transition Chesterfield for 2010. This was the walk that Steph and I were forced to delay by 1 month due to the very late arrival of Spring. Its well and truly here now and everything was in abundance. We saw many, many edible plants – here are a few which you could pick for a salad:
Sorrel, Cow Parsley (be sure it isn’t Hemlock), Bramble tips, Hawthorn, Garlic Mustard, Dandelion, Bistort, Wild Garlic, White Dead Nettle, Chickweed, Bittercress.
Enough variety there that you may never buy another iceberg again!
