First sping greens: Oh so delectable!!!

I hosted a book club last month. It was really fun to have a sit down and tea indoors getting to know each other while commiserating on the awesome nature of life and plants.

The first spring edibles are on the doorstep. Lets go check them out.!!!!I know a handful and always want to learn more. I will point out what I know. I am wonderfully excited. I so love the exciting newness and delicateness of these fine and wild ones. The plants and I LOVE to share.

It would also be really great to talk with more people who have read the book, Braiding Sweetgrass.

Walk may include a visit to an "ancient" sunken sailing ship.

Folks are welcome to come by my house as early as 12:30 to socialize and walk out to the piers together. 702 Reed st.

    Thanks for seeing that up, Wade! It's amazing to see things waking up so strong after that winter... Keith had asked about phytoremediation, and I found this site: http://mhhe.com/biosci/pae/bota...­.
    Unfortunately (if you want to eat them) it looks like the brassicas are especially good at pulling up pollutants. Although if he wants to clean up some soil, he should be able to find a ready supply around here :-) Till next time.

    Also, the timing is as follows unless rain changes it:
    1230 my house, 702 Reed St.
    1pm leave my house for the piers.
    130 meet at the pier.

    See the locating description and note that I just updated the map link to make it match the description.

    So, there is a chance of light rain to rain. Like Alan said, being out depends on how much rain. I'll head out at 1pm with whoever comes to my house so long as the rain isn't too heavy. I'll have my phone with me. Maybe we will end up at 702 pouring tea and over our field guilds. I was out in the rain yesterday and found a few small munchables in their very early stages. Depending on our knowledge and what's available at the Reed St. abandoned piers there may not be much to harvest; however, I do love Identifying and anticipating the early spring delectables as early as possible.
