The days are getting hot, but with each season there are cool new foraging opportunities just waiting for you. Wild foraged plants are free and very often healthier than store bought. I'll be going over some common plants you can easily find in summer, and begin enjoying nature's bounty. Some things i'll be covering: excellent plants in season, how to identify, where to find, precautions, harvesting, and how to prepare them to eat.
