Summary
A rise in popularity of urban farming, farmers' markets, and foraging from nature means people are looking for information about plants. Musselman and Wiggins show how to identify, gather, and prepare dishes from available plants, and indicate which ones to avoid. They deal with some of the most common edible plants of the Middle Atlantic states and the Northeast, such as nettles, daylilies, and panic grass
