I foraged 1 pound of pineapple weed at Wheaton labs while attending the PTJ. I am poking to apply this to my elective of 2 additional items off the dry list. One more dry item after this and I will have my sand badge!

This is my attempt to expand the dry list. I picked over a pound of lambs quarters and dried it in the solar dehydrator.
