    yep lots of food for the taking , the cost is a little research. early man was much more in tune with the earth than we are today. lots of good info on youtube.

    More food from the forest , we went fishing today, caught some Crappie and my girlfriend found this very nice lions mane mushroom.
    a wonderful tasting mushroom even if you hate mushrooms you might just love this one. these also some amazing health benefits for brain function.
    if you suffer from dementia, depression , stress and anxiety look into this. you can also get it in a capsule if wild food foraging isn't your thing.
    This bad boy is at least 5lbs and we already ate about 1/2 a pound. Click image for larger version.

    I've not found any chicken or hen of the woods here yet . I found an indigo milk cap during the summer , that was an odd mushroom with just an ok taste.
    I'm fascinated with the studies that suggest the lions main to help with dementia and other mental issues . and I think it has to be one of the best tasting mushrooms I've ever ate.

    I found 2 smaller Lions Mane and they are great as well....bear tooth / comb tooth is in the same family as lions mane and they both have that awsome crab meat like taste....plus no poisonous look-a-likes for either one.

    Being self taught on wild edibles I try to stay away from anything with a poisonous look alike too. I agree on the great taste, better than anything store bought.

    I'm not allowed to eat psilocybin. Mom said.

    Took a buck last Saturday. I pick morels out of the woods and then asparagus out of the ditches soon after.

    Oh right, and ducks. I like duck. Pluck 'em like fuirt fresh from the sky.

    Roadside ditches? Beware of roadside asparagus and toxins. They spray the ditches here in the country and the pollution buildup from years of auto traffic can’t be healthy. I see folks picking from time to time but should be avoided.

    yes toxins are a real concern even in wild foods. you couldn't pay me to eat ducks near an urban area , here's why. I worked at a waste water sewage plant for many years. In the winter the sewage tanks and ponds would be full of ducks once the sun was up , they swam around eating corn most of the day and would head back to the Potomac river in the late afternoon . soon after they would leave you'd here the sounds of shotguns on the river. I bet those birds tasted like CRAP.

    Yes. That’s another reason why I take only one large snapping turtle every other year, toxic build up in those old reptiles. If it weren’t for my heavenly Cajun turtle soup, I’d avoid them completely.
