What’s Coming up Next on Rachel’s Wild Plants Blog (updated for Spring 2021)
Our edible and medicinal plants blog will be featuring a new edible and medicinal plant every Friday – white water lily coming up April 2nd!
Followed by orange day-lily, blue eyed grasses, spring beauties and soapwort. We’ve already picked out all of this years plants including our 100th feature (scheduled for Oct 15th), which will be bittersweet – literally, the plant and the feeling. I can’t wait!
I’ll show you how to make bits and bobs with black cherry burls soon, and other crafts!
How Turtles Use Wild Plants was just posted recently, and the likes of snowshoe hare, deer, and moose are on the radar!
And as I write this the Wood Folk Diary is going to the birds!
