Eating Wild

The spring has sprung and here in Witzenhausen we are all filling our refrigerators and cupboards with wild foods. With field guides and bags in hand we head off into the woods daily and collect things to eat. The abundance of edible wild things is overwhelming here, including fresh birch leaves, spruce, girsch, nettles, wild garlic among other things. Soon the fiddle-heads will spring up  and the fresh buds, flowers and early berries will be here. 

There are more resources online today for help with this each time I look. It is great to see the work that is going on now with The Forager's Press LLC.  Roy Reehil and the people there are making a huge amount of information available for everyday people interested in eating wild things.
