|Pork steak locally raised & butchered by Paul. |
Homemade/canned pickled okra and applesauce by yours truly.
Poke weed harvested right outside our back door, cooked &
fried up with some wild onions & wild garlic.
The fact that we've been trying to change our eating habits probably has a lot to do with this. As does the fact that I'm cheap and will harvest any wild munchies (i.e., free) like poke and lambs quarters, rabbit, squirrel, deer, fish and wild fruits like grapes and persimmons.
After spending some quality time in the garden again today (and getting swampass in the process), I'm going to gather some other wild weeds from the property like Lyre Leaf Sage and try some for tea and see what I can do with the clover blossoms. We have a bunch of clovers & clover-like greenery (black medic or hops clover, white clover, red clover, arrowleaf clover and sweet clover) and I need to see if I can make it into something yummy for us. Why should the goats get all the munchies?
