Enjoying this right now while I fold up my laundry! I'm in a cooler climate so you are talking about things I have a little time to look forward to One discouraging thing I've run into is there seem to be plenty of feral asparagus plants along the road here, wondering about transplanting them and giving them a year or two growing in a clean place before harvesting.

I think that is a great idea and I often do just that!  If it is a rural, country road that doesn't get sprayed and the plants are not too close to the road, I'll harvest right from there.  But others, I do transplant.

Came across a good example of an early “invasive weed” that is an excellent source of vitamin C within yards of our front door: a nice example of Hairy Bittercress, Cardamine hirsuta, one of the old Anglo Saxon Nine Herb Charm.

When I did this show, I was down in the NC sandhills, and little cresses like that were everywhere!  I got a big harvest while walking the dog.

Very cool! I'm not sure if we have that exact one here in northern WI but I know we have other Cardamine species, both native and introduced. I will keep an eye out this spring. I didn't know about nine herb charm, but love learning about herbal folklore.

I ended up listening to a few episodes today, skipping around through them, while doing various tasks. It's a good podcast and it's fun to find something with a backlog I can gradually catch up on. Keep up the good work!
