planting in East Liberty and Highland Park this weekend. Meet at Dilworth Elementary on Stanton by 9am on Saturday!

serviceberries are awesome but you have to get lucky to find them and eat them!

we ate some hakcberries this year, but i dont really like the texture at all. kind of like crumbly rootbeer.

“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.

Foraging Ride would be awesome :D

ejwme: Your family is awesome. When you grow up you should write kids books.

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):

yes! all the ones with the wood stakes were planted by TreeVitalize. I happen to know of a location with a LOT of new serviceberries… maybe if i get a tag i will post it as the follow up tag :D

Plantings are still going on this spring, so if you wanted to get in on the last ones next weekend, go to http://www.waterlandlife.org/300 and pre-register!

I will personally be at the one in Larimer.

I’m reminded of Octavia Butler’s Parable books in which acorn eating is featured.
