I have nothing to eat!

One of the Groups we are in on Facebook had a Challenge, Go outside and walk around where you live and post pictures of five edible plants. Amanda found these in our yard.
Wood Strawberry

Rumex Crispus, Curly Dock
Broad-leaf Plantain 

Wood Sorrel
It’s Amazing the amount of food people step on, cut down, or worse yet spray weed kill on. Once you start learning, it’s surprising the amount around you that you never saw before. I highly recommend:

 The Forager's Harvest: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants by Samuel Thayer 

WildMan Steve Brill’s app
Wild Edibles Full By WinterRoot LLC.

With these guides and training from an expert you will never have to say I have Nothing to eat ever again.

So what’s in your yard? Feel free to post your pictures to our Facebook page at

Warning! Never eat anything that has not been positively identified, always consult local experts.
