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.
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.
I'm also in MO and wanting to get into some wild edibles this year so I did a web search and found a set of pdfs on the MO dept of Conservation produced from an out of print book. missouri wild edibles A search for MO in wild harvesting here brought up this thread so I'm bumping it
If I am not for myself, who will be for me?
If I am only for myself, what am I?
If not now, when?
