Some of them are noxious weeds to many but if you know what to look for and how to prepare there is bounty for free. And if you don’t care for the texture, taste, looks. Try them dehydrated and powdered. Great way to add extra vitamins and minerals.
    There are a ton of edibles west of the Cascades, not so many around our east side location. The only one I know of is the wild salsify. I tried that and then prayed to God I would never have to eat it in order to eat it to survive. There are blue elderberries, choke cherries and service berries but probably not in quantities that would be a huge help for survival and we'd have to range far to gather them. There are a few feral apricot trees along the lake shore, but, again, pretty far away.

    Living the PNW, we have a 7' black poly fence around our garden - 68' square - with simple 10' T posts (3' in the ground). We see deer eating around the perimeter, but have never once jumped in...we'll pray it stays that way. If someday they do, we'll just install a 2nd 7' fence a foot or so on the outside of the current fence - that should stop the buggers!

    No one hunts on our property - else they'd be shot. We don't eat land based animals...

    peace,
    Michael J.
