I was recently having a nice dinner conversation with my husband and brother-in-law, when the topic of foraging came up. Both of them foraged as boys, my husband in Virginia, my Bro-in-law in AZ.
My husbands description,"We used to play cow, crawling around on all fours and eating the wild onions growing in the fields."
Is this a common experience? Do you think gender is a factor? Neither my sister nor I have foraged, although I did take a mycology and botany classes in college that had us in the field, eating as we went.
