The descriptions and photographs are very useful and I'm sure I'll use this all Spring thru Fall, but I would have liked to have seen the following items included in the book:
-Labrador Tea is available in the Orono Bog and has some mild narcotic properties, but it makes a nice tea. There are a LOT of species unique to the bog, but I can excuse this omission since they are often only found in that one location and so it's very specific.
-Wild carrot should have been included. It's extremely common all over the place and easy to identify. The carrots are tastier than store-bought carrots because they are sweeter and fleshier, in my opinion. I understand there's some concern about Daucus carota being confused with hemlock, which is extremely toxic, but in my experience they are very different and it's easy to distinguish them based on several factors, like that wild carrot smells like carrot and has a floret (a reddish brown center with carrot) and stem (very fuzzy in carrot) that is distinct from hemlock.Read more ›
