Foraging Kit Essentials

What you don't know you need with you till you've done it:
- Wet wipes or a damp cloth to remove sticky berry juice, sap and cobwebs
- scissors to snip off those hard to snap stems
- a grabber, so you can reach that juicy clump of berries just out of your reach (or pick up those windfalls in the middle of the nettle patch...)
- anti-septic cream to daub on the mangled mess the brambles made of your arm
- tweezers to remove splinters, rose thorns and other stickers embedded in your flesh
- A number of different sized bags and boxes for your goodies
- A Dock leaf if you come across one on your travels, just to neutralise those nettle stings
- A watch, so you don't lose track of time and spend your whole day thinking - "just a few more..."
