October/November '21 moving forward, backward, sideward

Scrolling back through my images I realised I have been productive over the last two months - it just didn't feel like it.

The first Saturation Point forage is going to happen in late January and I‘ve been out and about exploring foraging sites - shocked to discover how few wild spaces remain around here so many hours were then spent hovering over my house via google maps - scanning the landscape for random pockets of woodland or brownfield sites.


Accessing rights of way footpaths east of Carnforth I came upon woodland by Lundsfield Quarry, an old sand and gravel quarry now a tarn surrounded by mixed coniferous and broad leaf woodland. It was an exciting discovery; abundant with fungi, mosses, lichen and bramble and bracken. I think this might be just the right place 💚

I harvested some pendulous sedge from the garden over the summer and it's been drying until I know how to weave a skep. I've started although depending on how much time I have, I may decide its finished before it becomes skep size but I've really enjoyed learning how to use grasses for weaving and

seeing it slowly take shape as the coil size increases.
