Whether you’re celebrating the Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, or some other holiday, I hope you’re finding time during these long nights and short days to dream of what you wish to see in the longer, light-filled days ahead.
I just visited my mom and her husband Frank in Yreka, CA. That’s in the Mt. Shasta area.
While I was there I found some meadow mushrooms (Agaricus campestris)
Now I’m in San Francisco visiting my dad. Yesterday I went to the farmers market and had an East Coast locavore’s citrus envy (citrus trees can’t grow outdoors in northeastern North America because the winters are too cold)…
…but then I remembered that as of next monday 29th I’ll be living in a place where citrus grows abundantly. Stay tuned!
Here’s a motley assortment of holiday recipes, inspiration, and gift ideas. There’s also a special offer for next spring’s foraging tours to give you and yours something to look forward to.
Give the gift of personal foraging instruction: Email me about how to gift either participation in one of my Spring 2015 foraging tours in the NYC, SF, and Yreka areas, or a private foraging tour (in case you wanted to know what’s growing on your property or nearby ;). 10% discount if you put SOLSTICE in the subject line.
