I've seen in your film you spoke of travelling to Europe and other regions in the world and of course never gave up harvesting. So is it a worldwide practice we can take with us ?
have you seen big differences throuh out your jouneys in different regions, of course in plants, like if we go up in altitude, but would you suggest your book maybe useful even across the ocean?
I'm a big fan of salsify and butcher's broom turions (I'm not sure of the american name, in latin ruscus aculeatus)

Absolutely! I have found a great deal of overlap in plant life throughout the world. This is particularly true of edible weeds (lamb's quarters, mallow, purslane, dandelions, etc.). Seems like these guys (weeds) like to travel. And when I find myself in a new environment where plant life is different, I try and find a local to be my guide.
