Dang, I think I would have eaten frogs and worms by now.  Personally, eating greens just makes me hungrier....

pappy just saw your post. the berries up here are just ripening. had a few mullberries. white though, its like eating corn syrup. very sweet. id kill for strawberries and plums. the ground berries (strawberries, dewberries) arent doing well because of all the rain. gonna be a lot of blueberries this year though.

I forgot about you . Glad I checked back. I had big plans of doing just what you are doing years ago but never committed to it like that. Also I dont know all the plant species you can eat. I did it for a day or so and actually ate well because of my location camping next to a lake full of fish. Even made my own hook from a soda can tab :). I found out red squirell aint to bad cooked over a fire. Anyways good luck.This is great "after dinner" entertainment ;D

                                 I prefer Makers Mark or W.L.Weller over Wild Turkey any Day ...........  >:D
As a species we're fundamentally insane. Put more than two of us in a room, we pick sides and start dreaming up ways to kill one another.Why do you think we invented politics and religion.

scored a lot of daylilly tubers, purslane and cattail today. i'll let the roots dry and sift out the flour. the purslane was awesome. stuffs loaded with omega 3's too. felt good and tasted great. also took the corms off the cattails and im gonna steam em with the daylilly tubers for dinner. hell i think i may break into a piece of the venison and make it a feast!! iwould expect i should feel tired because i havent been eating much  but im not. i have a lot of energy and feeling quite explosive (in a good way). theres definetly something to be said about eating quality food. ill post pics of the cattail process when they dry. and also get some pics of the purslane for ya.
