Default "Ides of March" Foraging



Advertise Here

...a few days late. It was a beautiful day so I decided to scrounge up a small salad before I throw the chops on my grill. In my area foraging really starts to take off about the third week in March although the Stellaria and the Lamiums have been around for quite some time.
The Elm samaras are just getting big enough to pick a few and the young leaves will be along shortly.

"Viola blanda" aka 'White violets'
"Taraxacum officinale" aka 'dandelion'
"Stellaria media" aka 'Chickweed'
"Lamium amplexicaule" aka 'Henbit'
"Lamium purpureum" aka 'Purple Dead Nettle'
"Ulmus pumila" aka 'Siberian Elm'

My wife and I have had a few dandelion salads for about the last month or more. There is something truly satisfying about being able to forage for a meal.

Of course I don't know much about the rest of the stuff you posted. I really need to learn so much more about this stuff.

Thanks for showing pics.

Thank you. Knowledge of the edibles that are free and growing around you is something that can't be taken from you.
I picked the top out of some "Galium aparine" aka 'Cleavers' this morning. I also took some pictures of the White Mulberry tree I coppiced last Nov. here: https://www.survivalistboards.com/sh...&postcount=549

Dormant buds underneath the stumps bark are sending out epicormic shoots. Soon I will have leaves to eat, twigs or branches for my rocket stoves, and hopefully fruit if I let it grow long enough before it's next coppice.
