Enjoying Fulfillment of Spicy Wild Plant

Filed Garlic is a wild plant that grows all over where I live from parks to lawns and edges of woodlands.  This is truly a delicious wild edible available year-round.  Although the top piece is apparently not the most flavorful at this time of the year, the bulbs under taste so damn good.  Beware there are poisonous plants like Deathcamas and Star of Bethelem.  The thing about those poisonous plants is they lack the onion odor.  Word of advice if you are foragers: if you smell onion flavoring, you are fine.  If you do not, you are dead or are just going to get sick.  These photos are available at my site at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/  You will find them in the plant and flower category.  Do not forget to reblog the post and follow me!

    I use to pick and eat these as a kid… I was never told about the “smell”… we would wait for the flowers… there is a big difference between death camas and the wild garlic… (we only ate ones that had purple flowers)
