Learning survival means you are out in the woods looking for various flora that can be used. Just because you looking for potential food stores, it doesn’t mean you don’t stop and “smell the roses”, so to speak. It’s been a beautiful Spring in the woods so far. Hope you enjoy these photos I took looking for vittles.
These flowers are not only beautiful, but the following are edible. (Keep in mind, it is illegal in Michigan to harvest wild flowers on state land.)
Edible: Trillium, Yellow Violet, Large-Flowered Bellwort, Spring Beauties, Wild Strawberry, Trout Lily, Pansy and Marsh Marigold (boiled several times).
Non-edible: Bloodroot, Jack- in the- Pulpit and Anemone.
Don’t ever forget that eating the wrong plant can spell disaster. Always know what plant you have and that you are using it 100% correctly.
