Foraging for Fifty Pounds

Red Squirrel

The last blackberries are clinging on to their bushes, the chestnuts are falling and there are apples, damsons, sloes and elderberries galore in our hedgerows. The end of summer doesn’t seem too bad when there are so many tasty treats to be foraged along our country lanes. This week’s Wooden Wednesday competition combines two of our current passions: the Great British Bake Off and nature’s beauteous autumnal bounty. WoodenToyShoppers who watched the Bake Off last night may have inadvertently spotted some clues to the answers to today’s competition.

Early this morning Rob nipped out for a run along the lanes and back roads near his home. During the run he stopped to pick up two different kinds of nuts (or seeds) and to win today’s £50 voucher prize, all you need to do is tell us which kind of nuts Rob brought home. We don’t usually give clues, but let’s just say that both of these might have featured in recipes in last night’s Bake Off.
