Here's my wild edibles test... Who can name all the plants? Who knows all the brands but struggles with plant identification?
I'll post the answers tomorrow evening.

Can only name three of the brands for sure! Generally agree with the above about the plants but I think that D is more likely to be a grape leaf, and in my area G would be a cottonwood leaf and H a sycomore leaf.
BTW, wild grapes on the ditch bank near me have tender leaves and I've developed a passion for their sorrel-like flavor.

Charming quiz! Thank you.
Here are my guesses:
A white oak
B maybe fir or spruce? I never can keep those straight. The hemlock suggestion above sounds good too, maybe
C wood-sorrel
D I was going to say grape, but I've been pulling a lot of porcelain berry in Massachusetts lately, so just to be different I'm going to say porcelain berry
E A conifer, but sorry, I really don't know who.
F maple
G Quite a few have that outline. A bit similar to the black poplar I know in Ladakh, a bit like the Tilia linden I know in Massachusetts
H Maple
I Some kind of cone or catkin, but not a mature pine cone, I don't think.

These are international brands. The plants are all from temperate zones.

I didn't know the one with 3 people or the alligator, unless it's Gator shoes. I thought the mulberry was a sycamore.

Oh, the icon with the three people is myspace? Last I saw it was "my____." I guess that goes to show why changing logos all the time is a bad idea. But, then, maybe they hope people don't recognize them and are lured into clicking on it. I mean, does anyone use myspace these days?
