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 11, 2010 Southeastern, New Hampshire Tall Meadow Rue is common in New Hampshire. It is easily recognized by the slightly lobed (3-lobed) leaflets and the ball of white spikes the comprise the flower. The leaf blade is ternately and pinnately decompound. That means that the leaf blade is divided and sometimes further subdivided into three (ternately) parts or two (pinnately) parts. Not all of the leaflets have three lobes. The leaflets are not toothed.
