The Bilberries (Vaccinium myrtillus) this year are far smaller than last but still worth gathering. And Bilberries make the most amazing coloured and flavoured smoothie as this recipe shows.
I harvested my Bilberry in the quiet of a pine wood, wind blowing through the trees, birdcall ringing out, and the sun beaming through the tree tops to warm me as I crouch down by a bush laden with fruit. Not another human around. It’s moments like this that make foraging so special.
