As promised Ole Miss Franny will blog about my not so brilliant idea about scavenging for wild edibles till my garden comes in. Upon waking this morning, supposedly day 1 of this experiment, Ole Miss Franny found her farm covered in yet more spring snow. This time of year I discovered slim pickin's indeed even before the few green shoots I could identify became obscured by white stuff.
I still have one bag of blanched and frozen chard from last year in the freezer. I think I will need to portion this out like gold till I can see the ground again. Hollis is happy about this reprieve, as he lives in fear of the projectile vomiting my ONE LITTLE mistake caused us both a few years ago. And there were no ill effects afterward, it was just one purging puke for goodness sake!
Anyway, the only thing I can locate for sure are the corms on the rootstock of the cattails. One does not live by cattail corms alone, and as I like my minimum daily requirement of leafy greens, forgive Ole Miss Franny if she cheats and delays this experiment until she can see the ground again!
