    Detailed list of where lots of our apples were gathered one month, how they taste and how we'll use them. Even if a variety of apple doesn't taste great fresh, you can mix and match with other varieties for great applesauce and hard cider.

    Harvesting Cattail pollen... "Take a plastic bag and a pair of scissors into the cattail stand. Carefully bend the flower into the bag, and cut it off. Collect as many pollen-loaded flower heads as you can. Take them home, and let them sit undisturbed for a day. Then carefully shake them out inside the bag. This method yields far more pollen than shaking in the field."

    We love baby milkweed pods battered and fried! I dip them in a seasoned GF batter and then fry them in a little oil in a cast iron pan until golden and crispy on the outside. The inside sort of melts like a cheese popper inside. Only go for the little ones (under 2 inches) and leave lots to mature and go to seed.
