Late crop of dandelions
We pick dandelions mainly in the spring as fodder for the livestock and (in small quantities) to go into salads. There's not often a good crop in August but when I was cherry picking in Beggarswood, I spotted lots of them growing. I had an empty sack with me so I filled it with leaves. The chickens in particular appreciated them.
