hey thanks for the note! i tell the labradors.
what a great giveaway! i took ballet classes for years as a child and it's something that will always be a part of me. and i would really like to learn how to forage - here in the pacific northwest seems like an optimum place for it.
thanks for letting me enter without a twitter or facebook account. i've "liked" you on my blog and i've enjoyed the shows for a while.
We totally found morels outside our house, just growing there alongside the road! Foraging for the win! Here's hoping the rest of the season is as generous/lucky
Before we had the kids (now adults) I used to take my Euell Gibbons books and sally forth on my bicycle, searching the swamps and fields of southern New England for wild foods to supplement our urban grocery store diet.
We probably didn't save much money by the effort, and I found plenty of poison ivy. But I learned to distinguish between many similar species, gained confidence in my ability to feed myself in an emergency of limited food supply, found some very palatable supplements to our city-dwellers' menu and made a few good friends of fellow foragers.
I grow a large garden nowadays, but I still love to take a hike and bring home some berries or knotweed. The grandkids are into it now...
I love love love everything you and your wife do!! Wonderful information!
