    Funny you mention fiddleheads (which I was picking up north w/ my mother a couple of weeks ago). I was on the Highland Creek bike path yesterday & there were a couple of signs saying no picking of flowers or fiddleheads.

    Nice ferns.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    I read the link. We've always boiled ours w/o any side effects. Eating them raw? I wonder if people are using them on salads?

    Much of our place is covered in a sea of periwinkle. Love how it looks now that they are in bloom...

    Raw? Blech. Have you ever taken a good look at the water after boiling them? Black as tar!
