Mice or possibly Mouse

Posted: 03/08/2014 at 08:34

Harvest mice are very scarce - I've never seen one in the wild.  

Wood/field mice are quite different to house mice when you look properly - what colour is the corpse's chest and belly fur?

Field mice are white-ish underneath and that does look a bit robust for a field mouse.

I'd go for house mouse - have a look on here

Good morning all   Wall to wall blue skies here this morning and it looks as if we've another lovely day ahead  

Today will involve visiting the farm shop ,  cleaning the bathroom , a bit of garden tidying  and roasting a chicken  - otherwise I shall conserve my energy - I have a busy week ahead of me, being entertained by an almost teenage niece!

Glad you had a lovely trip BL - that garden looks gorgeous

Dove, do you have to cook them at all? ...and I'm sure it can't be half a century

Nope - some people might say brine them first, but given that you're only going to be picking a few each day that seems impossibly fiddly - I just gather a handful and take them into the kitchen and pop them in the jar.  

And given that I've been doing it since I was 5 or 6, it's definitely more than half a century
