And now, for something completely different.
My first foraging video! I know a lot of folks are visual learners who need to really see the subject, more than reading descriptions or looking at photos. I’ve gotten enough requests for videos, I decided to give it a shot!
Plants covered in this video include:
- Black walnut (Juglans nigra)
- Wild rose (Rosa multiflora)
- Blackberry (Rubus spp.)
- Black raspberry (Rubus occidentalis)
- Japanese wineberry (Rubus phoenicolasius)
- Eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis)
- Amur honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii) — NOT EDIBLE
- Pawpaw (Asimina triloba)
- Canadian Wood Nettle (Laportea canadensis)
- Spicebush (Lindera benzoin)
- Wild grape (Vitis spp.)
- Common moonseed (Menispermum canadense) — NOT EDIBLE
- Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica)
- Autumn olive (Elaeagnus umbellata)
- Common Greenbrier (Smilax rotundifolia)
- American persimmon (Diospyros virginiana)
- American hazelnut (Corylus americana)
- Japanese knotweed (the plant of many scientific names, Polygonum cuspidatum, Reynoutria japonica, etc etc)
If this first video is well received (despite the audio and video quality), I will try to record more. And if you have specific subjects you would like me to cover, definitely let me know in the comments, either here on the blog, or over there on YouTube.
