I am about to admit something which may seem a bit strange. I keep a bucket in my car for emergencies such as this. This year I have ‘found’ peaches, blackberries, elderflowers and now walnuts.

There was a time when I would look around self consciously as I foraged.

What windfall has Nicola discovered on the French roadside?
