I will be guiding a Forage and Birding walk at LongMeadow Farm in Lebanon, OH this coming weekend. Saturday July 7, at 10 am. If you can’t make this one, we will be doing two more, one in August and finally in September. I’m excited about this – I love to talk about plants, bugs, birds, and whatever catches the eye while out walking through the woods. Also, the Queen of Tarts, the hostess and originator of this walk, will be providing refreshments before and after. Knowing her, they will be superlative baked goods. There’s a small fee, but really, it’s no more than seeing a movie in super HD, so…surround yourself with the most realistic possible outdoor experience, and here you don’t have to buy the snacks, they’re included! Plus you’ll leave knowing more about the wild things you can eat and see every day around you. For more questions, or to make reservations (there will likely be room for walk-ins this first time), call 513-435-3002 and talk to Sydney.
We do recommend long pants and closed toe shoes, as well as bug spray and a water bottle. I’ll guide you around poison ivy as much as possible, but there’s always a chance. Queen of Tarts has generously allowed collection of samples (always be respectful!) so you may want snips and a bag. Binoculars are great for bird watching.
What can you expect to see? Well, the photos that follow were taken at her place, and a few at mine of things I saw there during our preliminary walk-through. For more about them, come walk with us!
You can’t buy happiness, but you sure can forage it while taking a relaxing walk through the woods.

That looks like so much fun! Next time you come down here, we should do one here.
Of course! And I don’t know yet when that will be…
The First Reader says they are all weeds! Everything in the garden, weeds! LOL
i just don’t like the taste of many edible flowers.
