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.

July 25, 2010 Southeastern, New Hampshire I didn‘t think that I‘d ever find Pineapple Weed this Summer. I thought it was a much bigger plant, but it is a tiny weed that almost gets lost amongst the grass. You can just barely see the little green-yellow disks if you stop long enough to smell the Pineapple. It does have a Pineapple-like smell if you crush the flower heads between your fingers.
