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.

April 17, 2011 Southeastern, New Hampshire Young White Campion. Notice the 3 main veins that go to the tip of the leaf, not the edges. Notice that the leaves of White Campion start out in a rosette and are more oval in shape. The stem leaves become more elogated as the plant matures. Also notice that the leaves are hirsute (covered in hairs) and that the margin hairs grow straight out from the leaf. Hundreds of these plants growing the exact same place as last year‘s White Campion.
