Springtime Foraging for Wild Edibles in the Garden State

Plants have been bursting forth from the soil with the first few days of springtime sunshine. I’ve taken a few pictures of a few the wild edibles growing around my area in New Jersey. Consult multiple field guides for a proper education prior to trying anything. I always get to know a plant well before giving it a try. I like to use the I.T.E. M. acronym: Identification, Time of Year, Environment Where it is Growing and Method of Preparation. You can learn much more from a professional forager like Green Deane at Eat the Weeds.
