Autumn is a busy time in the hedgerows as mice across the land gather nuts, seeds, berries and roots to store for the long winter ahead.
I’m up in Scotland helping Tommy and his pals harvest blackberries and junipers to use in the production of vital winter drinks. The well organised Barty has kitted us out with armour from Tommy’s ancestral castle, so as to avoid the usual ‘ouchies’ from battle with the thorny brambles.
Once used in the ancient sport of Cat Jousting, the armour is cumbersome but does the job.
Morris would love to know if his fans are keen harvesters. Share your pickings and recipe ideas with Morris by hitting the comments box.
