Wild Forest Plants

Yesterday we went on a nature hike with an awesome guide who knew all sorts of edible plants that are found wild in our local wood lands. Here are some of the plants that we identified on our hike:

Snake root:
Wild grapes that will grow up the tree (leaves and fruit are edible):
Violet (state flower for Rhode Island, New Jersey, and Illinois):
Wild raspberries (fruit is edible):

May apple (fruit is edible in June):
Wild plum tree (fruit is edible):

Black locus tree flowers that have an amazing sweet scent:
