Highlights of the Week
In Franklin County, Blue Lupine (Lupinus polyphyllus) is lighting up roadsides and fields, including the lower ski slopes of Saddleback Maine.
I heard/saw one FOY bird: a Black-billed Cuckoo at Gilsland Farm Audubon Center in Falmouth. (Note: I'm leading a wild edibles walk there on July 16th.) Two days later, I heard another one at California Fields Wildlife Area in Hollis.
Wild Edible of the Week
I ate dozens of flower bud shoots of Fistulous Goat's Beard.
