Highlights of the Week
Jenny and I saw a Snowy Owl hunting alertly from rooftops along Mile Stretch Road in Biddeford Pool.
At the Saco Heath, countless reddish-brown leafy clumps of Leatherleaf are ready for winter.
Our first significant snow (~6") fell on the second half of Saturday.
Wild Edible of the Week
Prior to dinner most days, I enjoyed a bitter cup of Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) leaf tea, often mixed with leaves of Stinging Nettle and Lemon-balm (Melissa officinalis), all of which were purchased dried.
