Wild Food Foraging/ Sam Thayer’s New Book, “Nature’s Garden”

Stinging Nettle, a delicious, wild edible, WHEN COOKED, profiled in “The Forager’s Harvest”, Sam Thayer’s first book on wild food foraging.

I’m excited!  I just received a mailing from Sam Thayer announcing the printing of his new book, “Nature’s Garden.”  This book is the second in his series on wild edibles.

Sam is the leader on wild food foraging for our generation.  I met him a couple of years ago when I attended one of his weekend seminars.  This guy lives what he preaches.

One of my goals for 2010 is to make foraging a bigger part of my life.  I need to figure out a way to phrase this goal.  I recently found Leo Babauta’s blogs and plan on using his techniques for accomplishing change.

    Isn’t that a picture of catnip? I need to know if those are nettles because I keep snapping pieces off and giving to my cat!

  2. Yes, it’s nettles. If you click on the photo and click again you can see a close-up. Catnip isn’t as sharp-edged or as dark-green, at least in my neck of the woods. We have quite a bit of catnip growing wild.
