A few of us will be going on a hunt for wild garlic on Sunday 9th March – do join us. A great place to look is along the Water of Leith in Stockbridge, especially as it provides opportunities to pick ramsons (the true British wild garlic) and compare it to its invasive cousin, the few flowered leek – both are found in this area.
It’s almost that time of year again – garliky goodness abundant in Edinburgh’s wild places.
For those wanting to come and pick wild garlic this Sunday, we’ll meet outside the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art on Belford Road, at 3pm – this is a bit more convenient for the good spots to pick than Stockbridge. We could always have a nice walk back to Stockbridge afterwards.
My number is 07915 669 316 if people need directions or miss us.
I’m happy to have people around to mine afterwards to make things and cook with our foraged goodies. I live in Bruntsfield – send me an e-mail or a text if you want to come later on.
