walking through town it's hard not to notice the huge increase in homeless people. One neat, nice-looking older man walked up to me with a box filled half with nettles and half wild garlic
would you like some wild garlic, I've just picked it in Leigh Woods ... I'm homeless these days
foraging seems a whole lot better than standing around selling Big Issues but I worry about animal contamination when I can't see where the garlic gets picked so I let him fill my bag with nettles and then spent an hour cursing him as my hands got stung to pieces preparing it. Cooked up with lentils, lemon and coconut it's delicious but my hands are still fizzing.
IN OTHER NEWS I'M GOING TO VIENNA TOMORROW!!!
