- HI EVERYONE...
you may see me listed as either "lilyphaire" or "pat forshey". just
call me plain ol' pattie!
i am the co-moderator of an heirloom forum, a devout heirloom seed
saver/grower/fiend, and have just gotten into the wild edibles. why,
tonight's dinner is mashed elephant ear spiced w/peppergrass, side of
sauteeed purslane, spanish needle, garlic mustard and nut sedge. all
picked from the yard. if you can't beat 'em...eat 'em, as they say.
i recently finished getting my degree in horticultural science, and
my father, dr, c.g. forshey, is a retired research pomologist of the
NY agricultural research labotratory ( highland, NY ), division of
cornell. he is THE apple/pear guy ( "polm" being french for apple )-
and despite being retired at the ripe old age of 77, he stills
travels internationally to consult. so agriculture and horticulture
run deep here...
i am most excited about learning what i can/cannot eat out
there...and since i am new to this whole adventure, i will surely
appreciate any recipes and cultural notes you can extend my way.
nice to meet you!
peace and green~P
