Re: [Wild-Foodies-of-Philly] thanks for the feedback!

Hi Lynn,

Thanks, but I've never seen patience dock, which certainly doesn't grow in my area, whereas bitter dock is everywhere, and the first article doesn't really give enough identification info, so you could have either.

Hairy bittercress's hairs are only clearly visible under magnification, but they're clear enough then that it only took me 25 years to identify the plant to species! I cover it in my Shoots and Greens of Early Spring, in my WildEdibles app. Do you have either?

I don't understand why Wild Food Girl has so much trouble cooking docks. I have recipes on my site, in my cookbook, and on my app, to which I'll be adding bitter dock in an update, now that I now it's tasty cooked.

It's a privilege to have so many of your members attend my Philly tours!

Happy Foraging!

Hi Steve!
 
Thanks for the feedback!  We found lots of a type of dock that was identified to me by a local professional forager, David Siller, as Patience Dock - http://natural-herbal-remedies.factoidz.com/patience-dock-healing-properties-and-other-health-benefits/, but it also looks like bitter dock - although it didn't taste bitter at all.  Maybe it's the same thing?  Here's a good article on the dock confusion - http://wildfoodgirl.com/2011/reconciling-docks/ We didn't find any dandelions, although they should come up soon with this mild weather.  But lots of sow thistle is around, which has a look-a-like flower to the dandelion.  The cress we found was bittercress (but not really hairy that I noticed, but I'll go back and check).  Again, thanks for the feedback.  It got me to work on our field guide more and sort through the confusion regarding cresses and docks.  Be sure to use post your next event on our website.  It's a privilege having you come down our way from New York!

Hi Lynn,

I'm surprised you didn't find hairy bittercress, which is very delicious and all over the place in NY and CT, or common dandelions greens, which are at their peak here. Bitter dock, which I found it is delicious cooked, is also around. Glad you found all the things you did, though!

BTW, anyone here can send me a friend request on Facebook or follow me on Twitter. I'm supposed to be on CNN Money sometime midweek, if they don't bump me, which happens very often with TV stories that aren't top news items.

Happy Foraging!

Hi all!  It was a beautiful day!  Here are most of the edible plants we saw on the tour today.  You can look them up in our field guide at http://www.learnstuff.us/WildFoods.htm.  Some of these plants are cool weather plants, like chickweed, and disappear in the summertime.  Check off how many you already know, then consider organizing a Wild Foodies tour in your neighborhood!  This meetup group is set up so that you can do this at any time!  If you have any problems, give me a call at[masked]-3553.  See ya next time!  Lynn
