Living off the margins - edible plants of marginal lands

© 2010 Joshua Stark

I'm currently working on an additional page for this blog, titled, "Edible Plants of California's Edgelands".  Ideally, I'd like to provide a little primer on the most common plants, where/when to find them, a couple of recipes, and whatnot.

Are any of you interested?  Also, what might you like to know?

So far, here's my list:  Mallow, filaree, nettles, elders, dandelions, artichokes, fennel, berries, figs.

Sounds like a plan. Since i put those 'pages' at the top the amount of time people are spending on my blog has defiantly increased.

looking forward to Part One

Great! I'll need to get out and take some pictures, but I've got a few ideas put together already.

list looks good to me sir, go for it (especially filaree, don't even know that one)

Bpaul, it's nice to see you here! Hank Shaw put me onto fillaree (crane's bill, or what we used to call scissor plants) - I haven't tried it yet, but with the next rain it'll pop right up.

I'll start with figs, because that's what we've got right now. Figs. Lots and lots of figs. And blackberries, of course. And elderberries, and gooseberries, and currants.

Also, thimbleberries.

Jeez, I'd better get to work!
