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.

Queen Anne’s Lace (Wild Carrot) (Daucus carota): Images

Date Location Notes Images
April 7, 2012 Southeastern, New Hampshire There were no other Queen Anne’s Lace (Wild Carrot) plants in the area, so I decided not to dig this one up to eat the root.

Notice in the last picture how hairy the stems are. Poison Hemlock (Conium maculatum) has similar-looking leaves, but is smooth and without hairs.
