    With all the dandelions gracing our property (and our neighbor's property, and our other neighbor's property...) I'm wondering just exactly what are the (good) uses for dandelions? My mom said that sometimes during the depression dandelions were the only vegetable on the plate. (Not a veggie...

    I've heard of people doing this but not exactly sure how to get started. I mean, I see plenty of people who do NOTHING with their apple and pear trees, I know "spots" in my local dont-pick-anything-or-we'll-shoot-you metro park to find sour cherries and wild apples, among other things. I thought...

    So I haven't posted in this forum yet, but I found this article and it seems pretty interesting. Basically says if an animal is foraging for food, it's better to spend about half the time revisiting old sites and the other half finding new sources, that way it doesn't starve if it's main supply...

    I also supplement my garden with foraging. There are lots of fruit trees in my local and some of em are abandoned or neglected so I make good use of their produce. Foraging is for those that love to reap what they have not sown... Lots of these blew down with the remnants of...

    My family and I took a drive through a local park tonight and stopped at a wild apple tree that grows on the side of the road. We've visited this tree for a few years now, and the flavor and texture of its apples is simply fantastic! Last year was a bad year for the tree, it hardly produced and...

    I want to make some elderberry jam this year, but I haven't found a plentiful source yet. I saw several large plants in the Lake Milton area (rt 534 heading into Craig Beach), but they're all so scattered I think it might be too time-consuming to find all the owners of the lands they sit on.(Yes...

    I live near Lake Erie, my wife and I were walking the beach the other day after a 3 day northeaster. I began to notice there were alot of small pieces of coal laying around the beach. You probably could fill a bushel basket in the 3 miles we walked. I was thinking what an interesting way to...

    :eek::eek: Does anybody know anything about wild potatoes? I had an old fellow mention that there are about seven varieties of wild potatoes that grow everywhere in North America. He said that they were small, thumbnail size and very common. I lost track of him and never followed through with...

    My wild persimmon tree's are loaded, it just hasn't frosted yet. This is a once a year treat for us. WE make bread with them. Any ideas on preserving or freezing the pulp? The bread freezes okay for a few months, but what about keeping bulk pulp? Any thoughts?
