In March 2020, acclimatising to pandemic mode, I was establishing this blog and posting about wild garlic. Fastforward to March 2021 and I find myself in foraging mode again as the weather springs us forwards and signs of a fresh, new season can be i-spied all around. Perspectives shift with time and it’s the little things around us that impact strongly – buds, shoots and shades of green. Reality keeps pace with this generous-spirited season as we emerge from the tunnel of Covid restrictions and follow chinks of light. “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” Leonard Cohen
I leave you with 3 Seasons to be cheerful1,2,3 1 have a wild time and change up the cheese by trying a blue cheese, strong Cheddar or Tasty Lancashire – all work well. 2 herbs too can be varied – chives and thyme being good options. 3 wild garlic is abundant in shops and woodlands in March/April. So live in the moment, catch the wild garlic season whilst you can and check out some of my favourite ways of going Wild about Garlic.
