With any discussion of Garlic Mustard, it’s always worth adding that it tastes very good, especially if you pick it while it is young. The leaves are a great addition to sandwiches or salads, and I’ve been told that they make a pretty good base for pesto as well. So, improve bird habitat by removing it, and as an extra reward you get to add some flavor to your meals…

Extra reminder for anyone within driving distance of Amherst, tonight is the Hampshire Bird Club’s final meeting before its summer hiatus, with a slide show on Papua-New Guinea by Al and Lois Richardson: <>

Good birding,
