Another Edible Plant

Quickweed is a common invasive plant that was introduced.  This plant can be found in gardens, sidewalks, parks, lawns, and vacant lots.  Quickweed can be easily recognized by the fine hairs and the yellow flowers that appear.  You can use this plant in soups or sandwiches to get a nice added artichoke kind of flavor.  Photos available at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/Flowers-and-Plants/

A New Edible Friend!

If you had to be put into a survival situation, knowing about wild edibles is a great way to increase your chances of survival.  The key is to know how different edible plants can be identified by location, size, color, etc.  This is plant is called Asiatic Dayflower.  By it s name, it is native from Asia and was introduced to many regions of the world including USA, Canada, and western Russia.  The plant has no close poisonous relatives and can be easily recognized by the two blue petals with the three yellow staminodes.  The plant is considered invasive in some areas of the USA and could greatly out compete some other plants in the ecosystem.  Begin to munch down on this plant since it has a somewhat string bean flavor to it much like the Common Blue Violet.  The plant is good from mid-spring to mid-fall before the leaves start to become wither and less appetizing.  Photos available at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/Flowers-and-Plants/

The Ultimate Wood Sorrel!

Join the cult of having this delectable  treat of wild wood foods.  Wood Sorrels are known as Shamrocks, closely related to clovers.  Clovers tend to have more bitter flavoring while sorrels tend to be more sour.  Probably my favorite foraging food, it is a great food to mix with especially if you just want to eat something raw or cook it with onion or spicy flavored plants.  Photos available at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/Flowers-and-PlantsIMG_1434 copyIMG_1435 copyIMG_1439 copy
