Hi everyone....I'm new to foraging and currently reading Samuel Thayer's book "Nature's Garden: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants". Great read and I'm learning a lot but I'm also looking for a good field guild for the mid-west (Missouri) and any recommendations on one or pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm not familiar with that region but I just want to give some general encouragement to a new forager!

Here's a website with a ton of information about edible wild and feral plants, many of which may be in your region: http://www.eattheweeds.com/

grab a peterson's field guide for your area, I read mine for the Northeast every night, and bring it into the woods whenever I am hunting/hiking/doing a walkabout, and I try to identify everything I can, edible and inedible.
