Well. it seems that Autumn has well and truly arrived. The leaves are turning wonderful shades of orange and gold, the mornings are swathed in an eerie misty veil and the Guy Fawkes bonfires are stacking up all around us. November is a beautiful time to forage, especially in the woods. Even if you go out and find nothing, you will have had a day filled with beauty, colour and crisp damp air.
So what should you look for out and about in November? Here is a list of November’s main attractions on the foraging stage. You may notice that it is very fungi-heavy, not surprising though as October and November is high mushroom season and low season for most other foods.
