Wild or wot!

Gareth and others of that ilk, have you seen this? http://www.theecologist.org/blog_...n=y&blog_detail_id=257#111127

I don't know whether this should be in Recipes, Out in the Countryside, No Footprints, or where.

Ths guy has been featured on our local TV news, and I have already  been following his blogg. I think that I will be able to glean some useful and taste recipes from his exploits.

Simple fact is if we all chose to eat thus, supplies would last about a week and then extinction so what is the point , there are simply too many of us to go hunter gatherer :-?  A bit dreamy if you ask me.  The snails in my garden all eat dog waste .

I don't think he/anyone is proposing that everyone should try it, or imagining that it would be possible or advisable. It's just interesting in itself.

The most interesting side of it is just how much there is around that we don't use for food.

Just hang on before you pull up that weed on the allotment, in the garden and ask if there is value in it other than for composting is one lesson from the blog.
