The warm weather is bringing in more greens and mushrooms than we usually see this time of year. It is always a hopeful feeling to see the first crocuses popping their pretty heads out in city yards, and it's the same feeling as seeing the first tender nettles poking out to get a move on their long season of prickly take over. Nettles and crocuses are some of the first new green growth here when the weather tilts its head towards spring. Early daffodils are on there way. Chickweed and other tender greens are sprouting in mats soaking in the moist soil too. I think I will have a real garden salad tonight.
Foraged and Found Edibles is a northwest wild food business selling locally to restaurants and at farmer's markets in the Seattle area. Throughout the spring you will find them at Saturdays at the University District Market and Sundays at Ballard market.
