Buying your book! Before eating weeds was popular, I educated myself and picked them from my own backyard in L.A.
20 years later, I’m back wanting to learn more! Thank you for re-igniting my interest and inner passion for foraging!

Loved it! Thank you Sergei. There is much more that could be added, but alas it all has to fit into the time slot, and I liked how you oriented it toward harvesting and making a salad. I will say when I harvest I usually just pick the leaves or leaves and stems, leaving inner ones for the plant to recover more quickly and provide a continuous supply from the same plants. If your foraging grounds are limited and you are working with the same plants through the season it is a good habit to develop. More and more of this please...keep it up!

brings back memories! i remember eating inner grass stems as a kid whenever i was hunting for 4 leaf clover (then sometimes i'd eat the clover). i've got an unbelievable amount of pineapple weed in my yard, and unlike my neighbors, i've never felt the need to get rid of it. sometimes i just crush it and enjoy the scent.

my dad makes dandelion wine. unique flavour. i've weeded my garden and kept the leaves for salad, but i hear you can roast the root, grind it, and make a coffee-like drink out of it.

you totally missed the rose hips! the wild rose you pictured, when fruiting, produces a red berry. the seeds are inside along with some really unpalatable "hair". split a fresh berry open, remove the hair, and it's quite tasty and also good for tea. high in vitamin c - it's part of why we indigenous peoples did not get scurvy.

i'd love for you to do additional films focusing on native plants of various areas (northern plains, east coast, west coast, high elevation, desert areas).
