Nature's Secret Larder - October - Update

October - Update
23rd October 2009

I thought it was time I at least put something up on here.  I have been so busy over the past month that I rarely even get time to check my e-mails, let alone add anything new to the site.  This won’t be forever; I have lots of new wild foods I’m going to be adding, along with more tutorials.

Before I go on I would like to stress yet again, that I will add to the ‘how to make a catapult’ tutorial when I get time.  I get so many e-mails from readers about this particular article.  Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate contact from the site, but I don’t appreciate mails from the minority who think its fine to be rude and pushy because it’s not yet finished.  I pay for the hosting of the site, the maintenance and the hours of work it takes to keep it going as a free resource for people, which in time will become a strong point of reference for bushcrafters and those wanting to learn about wild food, and nature in general.  So please be patient, I have a very busy schedule and will add to it when I find the time.

October is one of my very favourite months.  I love the traditions associated with it, and especially Halloween.  My sloe gin is looking good enough to drink already and I have a good 4lbs of sloes in the freezers should I wish to make anything else.  The tomatoes in the veg patch are still turning red; I must have had several hundred from one plant!  The butternut squashes are not doing too well, but as it’s still so warm they are growing fast!  My herbs which I have been growing for my autumnal cooking on the other hand have been destroyed by our new rescue dog, so I was a little annoyed about that, but nothing much I can do now.  I have a few left so will have to make do with those.

I would like to remind the readers that this question in game two (just for fun) has had many good attempts, but still no correct answer! So please feel free to give it a go.

That’s pretty much it for now, but I will add some stuff soon, some has already been written up, it’s just a case of finding time to get in on here, and take some pictures!

Catch you on the trail
