While unsuccessfully trying to find some 4-legged things we could eat last December, we discovered some “winterized” gooseberry “raisins” still clinging to the branches in a large stand of bushes. Benjamin availed himself of the many leftovers that were there.

I wanted to let everyone know that we will be putting together our schedule of classes for 2010 very soon and will be releasing that information here on the blog, so keep watching the posts here.

Thanks for reading.

Grazing the Front Range… and Beyond!


Josiah (my 12 year old) and I hiked Barr Trail yesterday and found many wild edibles. On the list were:

  • Gooseberries
  • Chokecherries
  • Yucca
  • Juniper
  • Kinnikinnik
  • Mullein
  • Scrub Oak
  • Thimbleberries
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Prickly Pear
  • and an escaped apricot tree

Of course none of these things were in an edible state yet, but there’s a lot on the face of Pikes Peak for you to harvest (ethically of course).
