A walk this afternoon through the field and the forest offered me an abundance of goodies. Acorns for the pigs, two apples (also for the pigs!), chicken of the woods, grape leaves for sour pickles and a birds nest for inspiration. Just yesterday I was thinking about the goodness that is chicken of the woods and with the new moon I was hoping I might spot some. Of course it came to me when I was least expecting it - similar to my discovery of freshly blooming oyster mushrooms yesterday morning!
