Mid-Summer photos of some edibles at Lake Wedington
The year before last, I found a small patch of Sagitaria and attempted to harvest. This year, Lake Wedington is offering another challenge. The waterscape is abundant with the plant, so there’s plenty of opportunity.
I’m not a shroomer , but this looked a lot like the artist conk or the red-belted polypore. We left it where it grew, because we didn’t want to harvest what we felt unsure about.
Though I’m good with berry fruits, I was at a loss when I ran across this fruit. A reader identified the species as ‘Buttonbush’ or Cephalanthus occidentalis.
