But you have to be sure it is a wild one and not released from gamekeepers' stock or you may get done for poaching!
Only if you get caught
The rule with roadkill is interesting: if you kill a pheasant with your car it is illegal to claim it, but if you are behind someone who hits and kills a pheasant it is yours for the taking. Same applies to deer.
Have planted all onions (~100) and shallot (~200, but some are small ones harvested last year that will do for Spring Onions in the summer months) sets this week and sown leek and parsnip seeds. Cutting fresh parsley, chives and swiss chard and the purple-sprouting broccoli is coming along steadily - just a few more weeks and I'll have a supply of that which is an annual treat hard to beat. Should I grow tomatoes from seed or buy plants? I only want 2-3 plants: don't have the room for more than that.
