Foraging Wild Edible Plants in Southwest Pennsylvania
Some of the plants, or plant parts depicted, are the ones I have been foraging and eating for close to 40 years.
It's not all of them because I am still adding to my
repertory and, as I have time, they will be added.
Several foraged plants have at least one article noted which utilizes that plant or plant part.
If you live in the northeast U.S.A., specifically the Mid Atlantic states ( Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia and Washington D.C. ), then you more than likely will have many of the same varieties.
I don't get out West or down South so I can not speak for what wild plant species may appear there.
I started this site to help people that live in my region and are interested in foraging for wild plant edibles.
SEASONAL - Depending on what part of this plant is eaten. New shoots in Spring. Bloomed flowers and unopened pods Summer. Tubers any time.
Another of those bounties that require the forager to consider their growing location as very important. You don't know what is in the ground after road runoff, garden spraying, county road spraying programs, etc. If you find a good picking locality transplant some tubers here and there.
