I have been spending as much time as I can hiking lately. I can honestly say I do become quickly addicted to being out there in the hills, especially at this time of the year when everything is beginning to pop out of the ground. It is always amazing to me to all of the sudden notice that there is more of a green tinge to the hills than a brown one. Well, we are not quite there yet, but we are fast approaching that moment.
So what is pushing its way out of the ground this week besides morels?
More on the fiddlehead later in the subsistence pages.
Monkshood has similar leaves to the wild geranium. Be careful around them.
If the sun is out, or is radiating through the clouds, DO NOT let the sap touch your skin.
And although I realize that many people are disappointed with the rain, we really do need it right now. The hills are turning green right before our eyes! Go for a hike.
