“crumbly rootbeer” == best description ever (I’ve never had them, and can’t imagine it, but those are usually the most accurate descriptions of strange attributes). I’m going to miss this planting too
http://www.foodunderfoot.com is a local lady who does lots of foraging walks. She’s very cool, reminded me of how good onion grass is. When I was 4, my pre-school had a discussion with my mother informing me gravely that I was eating grass, despite being told that it’s “icky” and not allowed (they didn’t listen to my declarations of it’s being “chives” and didn’t appreciate my teaching the other kids to eat the stuff either, since we all had horrid onion breath after). They wanted her to tell me not to do that, she responded by telling then if it wasn’t poisonous, and didn’t make me sick, let me eat it. Either it’ll taste good and is food, or it’ll taste bad and I’ll learn.
I know this is a completely unremarkable photo, but it seems like a good time to revive this thread. TreeVitalize/TreePGH did an amazing job planting trees last fall & I see lots more of them around town looking ready to go in the ground. (Caitlin, are all the trees planted with the reclaimed wood stakes yours?)
And, it looks like I’ll have a bigger batch of Amelanchier muffins this June (scroll up to see last year’s):
