An accidental forage

I took to the fens this afternoon for a long walk. I’d taken this route only a few weeks ago and was surprised to see the fields looking darker and lumpier than usual – they’d been harvested! In early September onion farmers begin ploughing their fields to surface these root vegetables before the cold weather causes them to rot.

Luckily for me, the farmers had missed a few and, amongst a pile of rotten onions, I found four completely unscathed so, tucking them in my (very clean) welly sock, I carried them home.

Does it get much fresher than this?
