Wherever I go these days, I seem to spend a great deal of time looking at hedgerows, gardens, parkland etc to spot wild foods. When in the village of Bottisham in Cambridgeshire over the weekend, I spotted a couple of apple trees growing on the grass verge just outside the village. This was highways land and the trees probably grew from the seeds in apple cores thrown out of the window by passing motorists. No one picks the apples - well not before I came along. In less than half an hour I picked 3 carrier bags full of smallish eating apples. I think I'll be making apple pies tonight. Colleagues at work have also enjoyed fresh apples as well.
