    What do you do when encountered by members of the general public?

    Yesterday a bloke with his dog stopped us to ask "what survey are you doing then" I panicked and said one for the council thinking he would buger off. He then said "what kind of survey?" I said different plants and trees. He replied "what plants and trees" I picked up the stuff, slowly walked round the corner and legged it leaving the nosey parker watching us scurry off.

    Sorry, this made me laugh

    I've never encountered any people. I've often wondered what I'd say if anyone asked what I was doing every evening using secateurs to chop down Hawthorn, Maple and Hazel from the hedges either side of my house. My go to answer atm is that I use them for flower arranging.

    I just tell people that I am foraging for my rabbits and picking grass for my guinea pigs. Quite a lot of people tell me stories about theur beloved pets.

    Not even fresh plantain. Everything has to be crispy. You wanna come have a word with him omi? He won't listen to me. Kind of like when I had a mash potatoe addiction and my mum couldn't get me to eat anything else. Very frustrating

    Earlier this summer the council went bananas with the mowers and hedge trimmers and decimated everything. Then we had the heatwave which scorched the little that was left.

    Went foraging this morning and I'm pleased to report that grass round here is making a comeback I came home with a big sackful of the stuff, along with lots of bramble leaves and bindweed. Not great in terms of variety but I'm thrilled to have got loads more fresh grass than I expected to. My buns really do love it and I'm sure they've missed having it over the last few weeks.

    Fantastic I'm sure it all just needs a little bit of rain.

    Omi your so knowledgeable with forage I'm always impressed

    I need to get back at it as I was doing well then Luna ruined it all and I forgot poor Ralph would still like forage noms

    In fact I'm going to go out later and get as much as I can woo motivation

    I go to the cemetery next door, there's always someone around whilst I'm 'gardening' I just say 'don't mind me my rabbits like the weeds' but usually they're in their own grief bubble to notice :/ I did have one woman hand me a bag of weeds off a grave she'd tidied and asked if they would eat that which was nice of her
