Foraging Fun

After our trip to Spain the fridge was bare so we headed into town after a chat with the Mayor who was on good form, a trip to the dechetterie to off load broken glass and rubbish. Food shop, hair cuts, a trip to a wholesale veg shop which was great and so much better than the rubbish supermarkets we have down here and back up the hill with 3 bags of laundry to dry! Luckily the weather gods were on our side and we got it all out and dried by the evening which was great.

Decided we would try our luck with a little foraging in the fields next to us and we have had 3 days of great fun finding huge stashes of bolettes which we have had with garlic as a starter, have dried a lot and planning a soup for tomorrow with today’s haul. First brambles are here too so picking those daily too.

Had a good sort of mushies on the helipad with G&T at hand in the sun perfecto!
DIY wise we are getting lots of little bits and pieces done whilst recovering and before we start the tiling which all being well will start tomorrow. Both side terraces now have been re varnished and looks heaps better. Only got the helipad to do now. Yellow porch is now all sanded and ready for paint, invertor re installed in outbuilding, half hall way cleared of wood ready for phase one of tiling, rhubarb jam is cooking, paths are strimmed, bracken is cleared again and the odd bit of painting done so all good.
