Around here, foraging season is just getting started. This spring and summer, I will be gathering (hopefully!):
Morel mushrooms (I ain't sayin' where!)
little red raspberry looking things whose name escapes me at the moment...
huckleberries (No, I will NOT tell you where on these, either!)
I have to quit, I keep thinking of things. A lot of it, I just hit the woods and when I see it, I gather it. I've been doing this for 30 years now, I've reached the point where I've forgotten half what I know... until I am in the woods.
And, I have the blessing of access to old abandoned orchards, where I will gather wild apples, plums and pears.
I will also be studying my local "Bible:"
"Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Rockies"
Make seedballs using seeds from native edibles, and start dropping them along creek banks and such, make future foragers' work easier!
Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
