What wild foods do you gather? I came across this website a couple days ago and love it! http://prodigalgardens.info/weblog.htm Town is 20 miles away but after reading this I realized we have a supermarket in our back yard! Right now I have oodles of acorns processed and ready to be ground into flour and about 100lbs of black walnuts to hull!( a job for this weekend while hubby's home!) The Sumac trees still have their big red 'candles' but I think it may be too late to do anything with them. I just read the thread on Rosehips. In early summer our road is lined with beautiful wild roses. I'm going to head out there tomorrow to see if there are hips on them. - Growing up in England my mum used to dose me up with a teaspoon of rosehip syrup every morning before school. It was delicious! Last weekend we went up in the woods and marked about 15 maple trees that are large enough to tap. We'd planned on boiling down the sap but according to this lady you can use it straight from the tree for sweet teas! Anyway take a look, she has good clear photos and instructions along with recipes. P.
