Once upon a forage: family hunts for wild food : edible flowers found in Germany in March with non-striving alt-meditation.

(and epic interior adventures)

I have a daughter I named Violet and I’ve never tried to eat one until I was 39 and a 9 year old suggested it. I’m pretty sure I knew it wasn’t poison, but it never occurred to me to try my daughter’s namesake.

It’s a yucky weed, its a poisonous plant, no it’s edible wild violets! And they are everywhere, for free.

sugared violet cupcakes??? YUM

Next March Challenge: Wild Onions.

Will our foragers find anything useful or end up hungry?

  • Patience
  • Nurturing Trust
  • Non-striving
  • Acceptance
  • Letting go
