Edible plant foods of western Washington State
Salmonberries on the bush.
I live in western Washington, and I have always felt fortunate to live in such a bountiful and beautiful area. In fact, there probably isn't an easier place for wilderness survival! I attribute this mainly to the huge selection of edible wild plants in the region. To list just a few:
-Berries (salmonberries, thimbleberries, blackberries, red and blue huckleberries, watermelon berries, elderberries, and more)
-Tubers and Stems (wild carrot, fiddlehead ferns, and shoots, cattail)
-Tree foods (crabapples, indian plum, birch nuts, and maple and birch sap)
-Wild (and introduced) Greens (nettle, dandelion, and plantain weed)
-And more besides!
I'm afraid I can't accurately describe to you all of these (there are so many!), so I encourage you to go look up a couple of these plants--it may save your life someday!
