Before I share a brand new video with you, I wanted to let you know that I’ll be leading several mushroom programs at the Great Lakes Forager’s Gathering in southern Michigan from June 20th to June 23rd… and I’d love to see you there!
The Great Lakes Forager’s Gathering is the largest annual gathering of wild food enthusiasts in the Great Lakes region and features a variety of classes covering foraging, cooking with wild foods, and other traditional skills. The lineup of instructors this year is quite impressive, featuring such notable teachers as Samuel Thayer and Jim McDonald.
And now on to this week’s brand new video!
With only a few days left in the month of May, things are starting to appear more summery than spring-like. The warm temperatures, humid air, abundant sunshine, and green canopies remind us that, as lovely as it can be, spring can only do so much for us before its reins are handed over to the next season.
To celebrate the final weeks of spring, I decided to explore the woods in search of interesting plants and wildflowers that thrive during the transitional time between the two seasons. On a recent walk through a beautiful wooded area, I encountered two plants that were truly worthy of documentation.
If you’re interested in seeing the two wild plants that are too easy to love, check out the new video!
Thanks for reading and watching… and as always, thank you for your support!
