Here is my submission for the Dry One Pound of Peppermint BB - Foraging Aspect - sand.
To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
- A picture of one of the plants/fungi in the wild
- A picture of the bounty on a scale showing the weight
- A picture of the dried goodies in or with their storage container
Ounces as read from scale: 4.40 + 4.45 + 7.35 + 13.3 = 29.95
29.95 ounces = 1.8 pounds
I did extra because about 10 ounces had gone to seed.
This is a patch of mint that may have been planted by my sister when she purchased her house 15 years ago. It is in an area that never gets watered, managed, or weeded. I think it qualifies as foraged material since it has never been cultivated. For comparison, the lemon balm that I harvested for the natural medicine BB is in an area that regularly gets water (for the fruit tree) so it does not qualify for foraging status.
Edge case. It was deliberately planted. House is presumably still inhabited (not abandoned homestead). It's mint so no nurturing is needed. Not sure if it's truly "foraging". Approved with reservations.
