Wild Salad

Wild SaladLots of things grow on the towpath. If you are careful to avoid doggy peeing places and wash things thoroughly you can find delicious crops of rocket, dandelion leaves and wood sorrel for yummy salads.

I mix my foraged leaves with sorrel, mint sprigs and pea shoots grown on the roof of the boat. It’s lovely to think about summer salads when the spring sun is just beginning to shine that little bit warmer and I am really looking forward to planting radishes, beetroot and tiny tomatoes when the threat of frost has diminished.
