Mint harvested from our garden is a great treat over Summer and the smell of it in the morning after it has steeped overnight to make lemon and mint cordial is amazing.

We saw plenty of wild food today and could easily have made a full meal of this Japanese knotweed and if we'd had time to collect more these Sea Slaters which were hiding under the old bladder wrack sea weed. They are related to woodlice but might be up to three times the size. They are crustaceans just like shrimps.
And this is just a small sample of what we saw; three different types of sea weed, ramsons, common scurvey grass, nettles shepherds purse, green alkanet and ladys smock. Loads of wild food today.
