    Well written, and the photographs are unbelievable! I think it's great that you're writing about wild edibles.  People who follow your recommendations will be more attuned to the natural world.

    Thank you for all your hard work!

      If the pictures are good, I can assure you that most of the credit belongs to my wonderful camera (a Canon A590) and the tools at photobucket (especially the "sharpen" tool). I just push the button. :)

      You've hit on the very reason why I do this series. For so many people, nature is a green, undifferentiated blob. For those people, what the plants are, which plants are useful and which are invasive aren't important.

      But if you start to tell them apart and harvesting them (and being able to eat them is very motivating), then suddenly you start caring about the condition of the soil, what's been sprayed there, whether the plant is being crowded out by other plants...

      It can open up a whole new way of looking at the world. And it's fun and tasty and an extremely useful skill. And I'm always learning from the comments. Really, what's not to like?
