We’re off to our new base camp in Masardis, Maine tomorrow. I hope to get the internet hooked up in a few weeks, but until then I won’t be posting, answering email, or doing anything else web-related. If you need to get in touch with me, leave a message on our answering machine.
Today we pressed a bunch of plants, including water hemlock, yarrow, and Japanese knotweed. We gathered a bunch of the knotweed shoots, peeled them, and made a great pie with them. We cooked it in our sun oven. It’s a great tool for cooking outdoors and I’ll be writing about it in the future.
