Wondering why this article mentions a website about morel hunting, but no link?
Also, why no link to the morel mushroom message board link? But, when I clicked on the message board, it directed me to and a diaper advertising... very deceptive tactic for sure!!!!

Avocados are awesome sliced up on toasted bread with peanut butter!! (or untoasted bread, if that's your preference!). It was a happy accident that led me to try the two together, but a peanut butter & avocado sandwich is very tasty, filling, soothing!!

Just eat the fennel raw, it's really good.

I have to be careful with the foods that are high in potassium, since my husband is on a low potassium diet.
Love fresh asparagus, and wish I could get some of the white asparagus. We ate that when we were stationed in Germany and fell in love with it.

Don't forget about peas! Especially sugar snap peas. Best eaten seconds after picking. Asparagus is great nibbled on the way from garden to kitchen, too.

mix your favorite herbs or spices in some olive oil. trim of the top and trim the tips of the leaves. cut the artichoke in half from stem to top. use a spoon to scrape out the choke. boil for 10 minutes, remove from waterr and brush with your seasoned olive oil and grill (outside or on a foreman (or other brand) for approximately 10-15 minutes on a medium heat. if you're cooking several, and why wouldn't you, you want to keep the artichokes from browning while you're preparing them....set your cut artichokes in a large bowl (or pot if its a lot) of water with a squeezed lemon (or use the concentrate).

i dont know about everyone else, but here in appalachia, we refer to morels or wild mushrooms, as dry land fish and they are just as tasty and are a delicacy as they only bloom in spring and they are harder to come by now that so many people know of them.

Great information and I thanks so much for the link. Definitely considering joining a CSA, and did not realize there were so many in my area.

Don't forget jerusalem artichokes! Tho they should really have been harvested earlier. Having picked some artichoke tops, my sister checked them out on the internet to make sure we wouldn't poison ourselves if I put them in the salad. It turns out that they are full of protein and other goodies. So I shall continue to pick them for salad. Albanians only eat them raw. I want to introduce them to them baked or roasted.
We're enjoying some excellent strawberries from just over the border in Greece, baby spinach, swiss chard in the garden has just become big enough to be worth eating, carrots, courgettes etc from the market/greengrocer's stall. I love the summer ffruits and vegs in Albania, specially when my courgettes (zucchini) start producing in July. I've planted wild fennel, dug out of the ditch. No bulb, but juicy stems and tasty leaves. My ancient dill seeds have decided to come up, ditto ancient rocket. Instead of throwing old seeds into the dustbin, I've thrown them into the ground, which has produced some pleasant surprises.
