And so it’s December.
The latter half of this year has truly flown by for me. (But time has a habit of doing that these days, doesn’t it?) It seems but a week ago that we were out in the garden playing in the paddling pool in the July sunshine.
Still, the Autumn has been a marvelous one, not least because I’ve thoroughly enjoyed writing these Grow, forage, cook posts, along with the lovely Laura, and seeing all the magnificent seasonal cooking going on out there.
For the next few months, we’ll be putting #growforagecook into hibernation for the winter. We’ll still be adding the odd post, but not our regular fortnightly slots, and we won’t be featuring the monthly round-ups.
Fret not, though, for we’ll be back again in the Springtime ready for asparagus and new potato season.
Before then, though, a round-up of some of our favourite snaps from the past month.
From left to right, top to bottom:
@circleofpines: Laura and I don’t normally include our own photos in the round up, but this mince pie shot of Laura’s was so deliciously beautiful and made my mouth water so much, I couldn’t resist including it. (Plus, look at the serious apple peeling skills on show here!)
@nimblefingered: Annie has been busy foraging (/stealing?!) flowers over in Washington DC. This little jar was one of my favourites
@tomodachiwendymac: onions fresh from Australia… …and don’t you just love the weathered white backdrop?
@hannahseedsandstitches: I love this shot of Hannah from the wonderful Seeds and Stitches blog peering out through some rosehips. Check out a new series on the blog too, all about foraging from Fore/Adventure, who Laura chatted to last month…
@katgoldin: Is it edible, is it not? Whichever way, of course Kat Goldin’s photo is truly stunning.
@amelie_and_richard: Amelie and Richard always share loads of amazing #growforagecook pictures: if you’ve not investigated their feed already do go and take a look now. This was my favourite, though, for the understated simplicity.
@thelinencloud: Lovely Bee at the Linen Cloud joined in with us this month with a post on her blog with some weird and wonderful mushrooms. Go see: fungi.
@foreadventure: And here is the wonderful looking nettle pesto from Fore/Adventure.
@aquietcorner: Leek and potato soup is one of my absolute favourites for winter. Freshly picked from the garden, it can only taste incredible.
And a huge thanks to everyone else who has joined in these past few months. It’s been great seeing what you’re up to. Please come and join us again in 2015!

I love these roundups. Thanks so much for including me. Looking forward to spring for more #growforagecook. Bee xx
Beautiful photos, especially when seen all together. I shall look forward to seeing the return of these posts in spring.
Hhahahaha thanks for including me and my thieving ways, sorry foraging. The flowers were irresistible and I am always trying to get R to pull over in the middle of journeys to pick the amazing wild flowers we have all around us. – Annie
