Transformational Gardening

Disclaimer: Foraging can be fun, rewarding and provide health benefits. As a novice forager, I will be sharing my foraging experiences. However, in order to be safe, always consult with local foraging experts and guidebooks before beginning foraging. Children should learn to forage safely by being guided by experienced adults. Never ingest anything unless you are certain of the identification and safety of the plant. Some plant species are inedible and some are poisonous.

June 3, 2010 Southeastern, New Hampshire I took some pictures of a small ragweed plant. This is a useful comparison against the leaves of the Mugwort plant I picked on June 1, 2010. See the Mugwort foraging section above.
