"Thanks for that. I loved how you used the milk crates. Ingenious. I'd have never of thought of doing that! Sprinter, loved that as well, it made me chuckle."

"I mentioned Green Deans edible weed course. I've also mentioned how I get distracted (so many interesting things to pursue). Well last night I was having trouble sleeping. I was missing something then it hit me. My yard is full of weeds. This…"

"Foraging is something our members do at Garden Visits with permission of the owners. It is a good way to obtain cuttings to grow and excess food from our gardens."

Andrew Cumberland commented on Travis Franklin's blog post Foraging
"I have a few "top secret" foraging spots. I can get Macadamia nuts and Bunya nuts.  The falling fruit site looks good Travis.  I'll at least put the Bunya nut on the map (it's on public land).  "
