Ours have ripened a few weeks ago and they were gorgeous much better than last year but then again it is only the second year that the canes were put in. It was nabbed from a friend's garden as there aren't that many wild brambles in this neck of the woodscheers

Limpets-one of those things that are edible if you are desperate enough.

they are edible and easy to catch, but take them out of the shell's or they are a bit crunchy. I think there is only 3 types of seaweed you cannot eat I cannot remember so you need to research more.

limpets are supposed to taste ok if you chop them up small and are willing to chew!!

mussels are great but wait for low tide. I have even found some small black and white pearls in them though not big enough to do much with! scrape the barnacles off with a knife give them a good wash

place them in a large pan with a splash of white wine,cover pan with a only takes a few minutes for them to cook, add some chopped wild garlic double cream and salt and pepper to taste yum yum yum! remember to bake some fresh bread to mop up the sauce.

**remember to only eat the ones that have opened during cooking and throw away the closed ones**

Its a good time for hops in the hedgerows make sure you let them  dry and make little hop pillows you get a wonderful nights sleep 🙂 and they make lovely prezzies x
