I am planning my romps in Nature, plant by plant. Which plants to find when, where, for what part and what purpose. In no way is this a complete list. It is just my personal ongoing storyboard, in my context, for our purposes. And it evolves and develops, as a reflection of my gathering and exploration of applications.
Some of these plants I grow, or actively support while growing in the wild near the house, to guarantee (for as much as possible) our supply. For more on that see my Home Growing Storyboard.
