Thanks very much to the good people that joined us on our Seashore foraging walk on Saturday on the Dorset coast. They had a great time as we found:
- A range of plants including delicious greens, expensive invaders and seriously DEADLY species.
- A good number of types of edible seaweed.
- Plenty of shellfish – both molluscs and crustaceans.
For most the highlights were the razor clams and the anticipation of what was in the pot – a remarkable 4 Shore crabs and 4 Spider crabs! Birthday-boy Mike got to take the razor clams home, and I had the Brown Shrimps and the biggest Spider Crab. Guess what I had for lunch today!
On the way home I picked some St George’s mushrooms which dried in the sun yesterday as did some Gutweed which the people on the course kindly gathered.
Yesterday, I hit the coast again and picked the below plus some Wild Rocket, Dulse and Carrageen.
Thanks to some of the course attendees for supplying photos.
