    I've noticed a lot of the same too. Hawthorn is hit or miss though - it's either fully in bud or not at all depending where I walk. :lol:

    Been out today. Saw lots of young hogweed, mostly picked that, cow parsley, goosegrass, and dandelion. It's gone down a treat for their tea.

    And my foraging boots finally died today. :(

    I just went for a shortish forage. Came back with 5 bags. :shock: Some plantain leaves were as big as my 20-year-old 1kg tortoise.
