We hadn't intended to do much today so we just went for a little wander. I was thirsty first thing and decided to have some of my elderflower cordial, so I opened a bottle and it sprayed everywhere, seems I had inadvertantly made elderflower champagne, there must have been a lot of natural yeast on the plant when I picked them..
The place we went to was full of cherry trees and they had lots of fruit on them
But they were still green, so we'll be back in a fortnight with the picking stick!!
It has been raining a lot lately and the ground is very wet so we elevated the fire base and used our favourite birch bark
We lit the fire with a slow match of pure cotton cord soaked in a saltpeter solution
Davy cooked up some of his delicious stew
And the best part of the day, as we were going home we found a wild blackcurrant bush, not a great lot of fruit on it be we did manage about a pound, soon be jam making time!!
