icon1The act of looking or searching for food or provisions!


Man, am I ever hungry for a wild salad. Chickweed and dandelion and woods sorrel, with some wild onions and garlic. Maybe add to that some of my marinated dried tomatoes and garlic. I’ve got my eyes peeled for new, fresh, wild foods every time I go outside, but I’m afraid it is still too early.


If you start foraging wild foods, I highly recommend keeping a foraging journal from year to year. I imagine I was awfully busy with harvesting, drying, canning and whatnot, but I KNOW I kept foraging until November. I’ll just have to do better and make journal notes all year. There’s nothing in last year’s journal about all the Jerusalem artichokes, black walnuts, evening primrose roots, etc.
