Late summer is a great time to harvest, harvest, harvest! My number one tip for beginners is to harvest everything you know is medicinal or edible now or the plants listed in my articles and hang them up to dry in your house. You can use them for medicine as you learn about their uses all fall and winter until spring comes.

It can be frustrating to learn wild plants partly due to the necessity to harvest during the right time of year. For many years, I’d get the foraging bug in the winter, when it’s harder to learn new plants and harvest . . . but then I learned most of what I know through books.
