To all who have been discussing foraging, or reading my original thread on foraging, or who might be thinking about foraging when they're all alone and feeling down:
Thanks for all of the suggestions for cool spots to go and pick wild things! You might remember that I originally floated the idea of writing an article on foraging. I am indeed writing that article now, for a local publication. I have corresponded directly with this site's "Big Dog" and he has allowed me to use this posting to ask for more, more, more.
So: Without getting me nailed by the cops or shot by vigilant property owners, where can I forage around here, and for what? Post here! Please indicate in your posting whether you would mind if I quoted you in the article. I have no intention of angering people who may know the difference between hemlock and anise.
Tell me: Who are you? Where do you live? Why do you forage instead of buy? Does it take a specific kind of person to forage? Do foraged, feral foods taste better than the stuff at the grocery store? Have you ever gotten caught on private property? Is it worth the risk? And, of course, where are the best foraging spots?
Bless you all in advance.
