    Unfortunately, you pretty much have to have the water tested before you can safely forage it. So many streams are polluted, and watercress tends to store toxins.

    So the farmer's market is probably the safest place to get it.

    -6.88, -8.10... Is that the Delta quadrant?

      besides being careful to avoid the poison ones remember that the ones in your urban setting are very apt at collecting and storing pollutants and other toxic crap-it's a quality that makes them very useful in restoration of soils, but not so healthy for us to eat.
      By the way I LOVE your diary!
