I went out to check for fiddleheads (Ostrich Ferns, Pteretis pensylvanica) today. They aren’t up nearly far enough yet. I suppose the fact that they were underwater last week has something to do with it.

I did find some Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens) recently. I wrote an article for the Wilderness Wiki. You can find it here

I also found some Clintonia (Clintonia borealis) shoots that will be ready in a few days.

Yes, spring is certainly here, and its bounty will be available for the harvesting from now on. I can’t wait.
