The root beer tree!
Why is it called a Redbud when it's flowers are either pink or purple?
Kind of invasive, kind of edible, kind of yellow, kind of native?
Many of these jelly mushrooms are edible, but look at this thing: would you want to eat THIS?
If you can't get any lemons because of weather or supply chain issues, maybe just get out to the edge of some woods and harvest yourself a little sumac.
Why can't you be a blueberry? Why????? There are so many of these in the woods.... but they really don't taste good.... whyyyyyy.
Just another jelly fungus that is totally edible and totally not palatable to me (at least visually!)
If I was making up the common name of this fungi, I would call it Pearly Puffball.
I just love the common name of this fungus, probably because I really love snow.
Our very own native mint! And it is an insect pollinator super-attractor as well.
