Foraging the Welsh for all they are worth.
This week the Skull Gang forage for drugs at Field Day
Grandpa Charlie used to make Elderflower wine each Christmas. He drank it throughout the day, until he fell forward out of his chair and slept on the rug.
Fennel is pretty special. You can use it to steal fire from the gods. It was one of the nine sacred herbs of Woden (the pagan dude with one eye)
