Foraging Update: Cattails, Nettle, Asparagus, Milkweed Shoots & Wild Mushrooms oh my!

Once the wild garlic and the fiddleheads were harvested I thought my foraging days would slow down a bit before the wild mushrooms took over but boy was I wrong!

I’m constantly amazed at the variety, versatility and bounty of our natural surroundings.

Here are some of the recent wild edibles I’ve found on my walks. I hope you enjoy them and find some inspiration to do your own foraging where you live!

P.S. foraging, identification and recipes to come sometime when I’ve got time for blogging! 😀
