Urban Foraging 101: Expect The Unexpected & Drink In The View

My favorite single corner on my daily commute, when it comes to “visual” foraging would seem an odd choice. ┬áThe little strip of disturbed ground at the corner of Poplar and Mendenhall where my work-a-day bus lets me out is ridiculously fertile ground for late winter/early spring greens, all things considered.

I counted six plant allies growing in riotous profusion between Poplar and the tracks, with perhaps the highest concentration by the corner.

I saw curly dock, plantain, chickweed, cleavers, vetch, and dandelion.
