What’s Coming up Next on Rachel’s Wild Plants Blog (updated for Late Summer/Fall 2021)
Our edible and medicinal plants blog will be featuring a new edible and medicinal plant every Friday – our 100th will be posted on October 15th!
I’m already excited for our winter line up of partridgeberry, winterberry holly, wintergreen, and Christmas fern. We’ve already picked out next years plants! And we’ve got nearly 100 in the queue for 2023+.
When December 17th comes around, the Wood Folk Diary is going to the bugs! We’ll take a break from birds and focus on pollinators and their host plants for a while.
Please Invite Your Wild Friends!
