While traveling in the countryside I often notice trees which have sprung up on waste land, along creeks etc

There is a bounty to be had if you keep a lookout.

Acorns:

Apples:

(Actually its a bit late for apples now. There was a couple on this tree, and they were half eaten .... a bit of cleaver photography on my part make them look good :_risata: )

Blackberries, plums and other stone fruits are common too, and an occasional fig. A few weeks back I found a macadamia tree with lots of nuts. Nice !

Thanks.

I love using things which otherwise would go to waste; and it helps tune your eye to what's around
