Hi everyone,
As part of the light harvesting module, I weighed my vegetables to get a feel for how much I would need to find locally in the wild if I had to rely on foraging for food. I was quite surprised at how much I would need but also had thoughts about what I could forage to replace the usual things I eat on a daily basis. Has anyone tried to replace a whole day’s food with foraged bounty? Luckily I live near a community orchard. The fallen apples I collected (4 in total) were enough for an apple pie dessert. However other than finding some nettles and dandelion leaves to replace salad leaves I struggled to find enough of the daily amount needed. Has anyone else tried this? Has anyone any suggestions for replacements? 🙂
