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, 2012 Southeastern, New Hampshire In order to separate the Wild Radish from the Cultivated Radish (Raphanus sativus), it would have been helpful to take pictures of the seedpod, measure the width and notice the long pointy seedpod beak. But I was too busy nibbling on radish root (which was a little bit woody at this point). The taproot of Wild Radish is slender (not pictured) while the taproot of Cultivated Radish and conspicuously thickened.
