A Word on Safety
If you are interested in knowing more about wild edible plants I encourage you to become your own expert.
You may learn to positively identify only one plant, but you will be 100% sure of that plant.
Purchase a few good field guides. They should include clear, color photographs of the plants. Check references against each other - compare for consistency and accuracy.
Books and internet sources should always include information on ‘poisonous look-alikes’, if any.
DON’T put a plant in your mouth until you are 100% sure of it's identity!
