Today it is time for a bit of a change up, we haven’t discussed either foraging or gardening/permaculture in depth for quite a wile, so why not today. Looking to make things interesting though I decided that today was a good day to come up with 10 edibles that you can find in the wild through out much of the country, in fact I bet you can find a few in any of the lower 48 easily enough if you get out and look for them.
These ten plants have more than availability and edibility going for them though. They all also offer nutrition, ease of growing, ease of cultivation and can be grown mostly unseen in either a back yard or on a back 40. These crops are crops your can largely get going and forget, once established most will always be there if you need them. They are all either native to the US or highly adapted aliens that are now so common in the US we need to start calling them naturalized vs. alien.
