of good reasons are given for growing perennial
plants. One thing I found that isn't
mentioned is the different relationship with
perennial plants. (I am not talking about medicinal
plants here but edible ones). When I pick a salad I
visit a lot of plants, whilst taking leaves I often
talk with them, now they are the best friends I
have at The Field and an important reason for me
to go back there regularly. It's definitely different
from growing lettuce.

reached this level, but maybe I am just more
if they are edible (and nice tasting) or not.
I seem to developing a sense of poisonous plants,
but I would not trust my self, and always check on
other peoples experiences.

do a skin test (what Wolf described), then a your
then to chew a bit without swallowing, then to eat
a little bit. Between each test there should be
enough time (a day), and as you say you have to pay
attention. Only test one plant at a time. Still some
poisonous plants might slip through, don't continue
eating the plant after survival without looking
up other peoples experiences.
I found the remaining bit of a your mail very
interesting. I will take a look at the books
Stephen Harrod Buhner books. As I'm very interested
in deepening my relation with plants. If anybody
on the list has experience or advice, I'd like to
Do You Yahoo!?
