Down at the oxbow on a photo shoot . No luck but found myself sitting in a stinging nettle patch . So harvested a bunch (wish I had some gloves ) Decided to see what else I could find walking back to the car . Looks something like catail but doesn’t quite jive Stopped by a Cattail Swamp on the way home . Compareing the wild Iris from the oxbow and cattails . Notice the flat stalks on Iris and perfectly round on cattail .Also lots of dead cattails from last year . Dandelion of course but key is don’t ruin your greens with the real bitter ones . Found lots of chives and some wild Garlic Here is a table full of Chives and wild garlic , cattail shoots . Small tender ones are best . Cleavers , but they’re not going in the stir fry Because they need to be boiled thouroghly. Then the star Nettles . Looks like a lot but it reall reduces . Went into the house and harvested 2 inches of frozen bacon Fry the bacon a little mainly to get some grease .
