Thank you for sharing all the details and photos of your wild plants! I especially like the plant listings w/ details on the plants. I'm striving to someday catalog and map my plants and you guys are an inspiration :-)
Also, please include scientific names... as a plant scientist, I find so many "common" names for the same plant... or multiple plants with the same. Latin names give direct reference to sources to properly identify them, which is critical.
Very true, Vicky. One should take some time to read up on these plants, especially, how to identify them in the wild, before going out and sampling them. Very important! Young comfrey plants and young foxglove plants, before they bloom, can resemble each other a bit. The last thing anybody should do is ingest anything from foxglove... do your homework before you go harvesting!
