    Ok I will feed milk thistle but chicken hogweed is a no

    This looks like sow thistle to me and I have fed it when I can find it

    I won't bother introducing it if I can only feed fresh

    Hello my foragey friends What are you finding in this cold, cold weather?

    I've just managed to find quite a lot of fresh grass, loads of rampant Chickweed and Red Deadnettle and a little Cleavers. Two little noses are now covered in greenery

    I haven't foraged anything as of yet. I might Google those ones you have found though

    We've got much the same selection here. Differences are we've still got loads of Red Deadnettle and Chickweed. And I haven't seen Herb Robert since last Summer and I am amazed that you are finding Geranium

    I guess yours is a special "Bonding Forage Mix"

    It is helpful for bonding but bought loads of herbs too. They'll be back at the vets & have gained more weight

    Herb Robert grows really well in the cracks between dry stone walls around here. Nice you don't even need to bend down. The geranium patches are massive when they get going -today found tiny leaves, looked like new growth to me. My bunnies also like stripping bark from hawthorn thats budding. I still don't know what chickweed looks like in real life. Shall google an image & take a look next time I go out

    Still getting loads of cow parsley, dead nettle (which is newly springing up), chickweed (quite lush) and sparse geraniums.

    I have *a lot* of herb Robert in my garden, and particularly in my spinach patch!
    (and why did autocorrect put a capital R in Robert?)

    How exciting is it to see all the trees budding. Not long now. Do you think this spell on sunshine & warmth means we can tree forage earlier? My pear tree is starting to bud leaves
