We just love living in a rural setting.
We are learning a lot about the plants and creatures that surround us, and that's exciting! This spring we have learned a little bit about the elusive morel mushroom. We've enjoyed a bit of success hunting them on our own, right on the property where we are living. (Did you know that people around here gladly pay $35-40 for one pound of morels?) We've also enjoyed foraging for ramps (i.e., wild onions/ wild leeks). They're plentiful, and very similar to green onions, but more pungent. Delicious! We also came across a couple rhubarb plants, and we scarfed down a tasty strawberry rhubarb crisp last week.
We can't wait to have a garden!
