|Wineberries (a tart relative of the raspberry) are a at their peek right now|
So. . . remember how I said I would try to do a blog post a week? And now it's been over a month and no posts? Ugh!

It's also that June-July is a great time for wild fruit. I got lots and lots and lots of wild fruit--first juneberries, then mulberries, now wineberries and blueberries are coming into their own. There were pies, but you really don't need me to tell you how to make a pie, you probably have a great recipe from your mom or grand mom.

Other than that, I have been keeping up with Pinterest. I am really trying to maintain a comprehensive reference of wild, foraged recipes from all over the internet. I also have boards that focus on medicinal uses for wild plants, and even crafts. I have a board dedicated to the poisonous and the deadly. Finally, I am trying to pull together a comprehensive list of really good plant & mushroom ID sites--but ONLY if I have eaten the plant/mushroom myself and I feel that the ID information provided is 100% accurate, and satisfactorily handles toxic look-alikes. If you haven't checked it out yet, please visit my Pinterest here.
I also started a Facebook page, though I am not much of a FB person, even in my personal life. Please friend me, even though I am not much of a poster, I love hearing other people's foraging stories, and FB is a great resource for sharing articles and other trending information.
