    Tried these for the first time this year (were good last week in march). Pine pollen cones - delicious with a very neutral slightly alkaline flavor, think a hint of pine seriously watered down.

    I also tried persimmons for the first time this year. I found them early in the Fall ('14) and read that I had to wait till it after the first freeze to eat them. So I came back later in the season when they looked like this (see below) and they still sucked the spit straight out of my mouth! Someone please explain how you eat these things!

    I think I missed mushrooms this year (again) so I'm hoping to try that for the first time next year.

    From what I've seen over the last weekend:

    The Mulberry trees are starting to ripen, The Cherries are taken by the birds already, Rasp/blackberries are starting to flower, and I've yet to see any other fruit.

    I decided I needed to learn more about over looked and less obvious edibles so

    Labor Day weekend my girlfriend and I are doing an two day overnight spring edible class in the North GA mountains with "Medicine Bows ltd". I'm pretty excited for that.

    Not exactly a wild location (woods area near where I work) - but definitely wild themselves. I got my first ripe blackberry last week and there should be more to come - for a little while anyway :)

    Some wild dewberries from the Texas Gulf Coastal Plains which received more rainfall than recent years so the berries were more plentiful and of better grade this season. I picked 3 gallons this year and my wife made several pies for family and for my birthday. Photo is from a previous season but typical of the locale.

    The inner bark of twigs from a Flowering Dogwood (Cornus Florida) steeped like tea has been alleviating my girlfriend of her headache for the past 48hrs..

    Man I wish there were morels to pick in my state (CT), unfortunately there are very few, if any. However, I do pick about 28 different species of other wild mushrooms and tons of ramps! I honestly contemplated flying up to the upper peninsula of Michigan to pick Morels this year.

    Laetiporus AKA Chicken of the Woods, enjoyed on a recent trip the GWNF VA. Not the best image but I imagine most have seen and tried this tasty fungi.

    I haven't found a single mushroom this year so far in any of my regular spots. It's either too dry or too wet :(

    Thanks! Yea ours out here too. Just been so dry from the drought. I've got a couple little coastal pockets to try out the next few weekends that might be promising. Oh man, I love chanterelles! Looking forward to some photos if you find some!
