Family Photo Friday

Something a little different this week, since we're off our regular posting schedule.


Enjoying a dinner of some broccoli soup, good bread, garden asparagus, and foraged morels.

Sign of Spring - Fiddleheads

Foraged spring greens are always a delight, but I especially like learning to identify new plants.

Fiddleheads are a new one for me, and with the help of The Forager's Harvest, my new favorite wild edibles guide, Dan and I were able to correctly identify, harvest and prepare them.

We were also on the lookout for ramps (wild leeks) but did not find any on our hike today, so will continue looking next time out. The window for fiddleheads is so short, we'll likely go out again in the next couple of days to get more for fresh eating as well as freezing.
