I was out yesterday hauling up a few buckets of water from the river and noticed some lovely green/red shoots popping out from the earth. Sure enough the fireweed are starting to grow! They are only 1/2 to an inch tall, but they are there and soon there will tons more everywhere. I picked a handful of the tiny shoots and added them to my spaghetti sauce just before serving. Soon instead of just adding a little flavor they will turn into a huge side dish. Looking forward to a wild green salad or stir fry and grayling dinner! Hopefully soon.
What's popping up in your neighborhood?
