Of course I had to do it on the hottest most humid day we've had so far.
I found some St. John's Wort.
Everyone is in a huge scare over the wild parsnip. If you mess with it and get juices on you while they are flowering, you will get burned and blistered.
However I walked carefully through a field full of them. Walk carefully. Don't wear shorts and be very cautious.
In order to find the yellow wild raspberries, I had to get through them.
It was a delight to find them and eat them.
I didn't bring a pickin' bucket.
I just enjoyed the taste.
However, I wonder why I always decide to pick the hottest days to do these wanderings?
At least I was able to cool off in the creek on the way home.
