There are so many wild plants I want to try! My son's girlfriend knows a ton about wild plants and has taught him a thing or two about it. He told me that last month he tried voilets, maple leaf, wild ginger, and clover! I was so impressed!@Dahlia im sorry my comment about the dandelion caused such disruption on your thread!
getting back on script, around here the rose hips are preferred after a frost or two, which makes them soft and a lot sweeter. Pre-frost they’re pretty chewey. As i walk down to the rabbit barn each day to do chores, i pass several bushes and even late in the winter the hips that still hang on taste great.
Im always happy to see someone living outside the bounds of normalcy with they’re eating habits! There’s so much out there you can eat besides the peas and carrots you grow in the garden. I’m was really surprised to learn how to use the many things we either walk by or mow over simply because we didn’t know.
i wonder if a wild crafting forum section would get any traction around here? It’s still gardening; in fact wild crafting comes closer to our namesake than anything else. ‘The Easy Garden”?
