Hello from Spring/The Woodlands

Hello from Spring. Glad to be aboard and to meet you all. I am very interested in learning more about the trees and edibles in my area, and of course more bushcraty skills!

Welcome! I live in Montgomery County just to the north of you. Be careful about eating edibles that close to Harris County. Some areas have seen a lot of use and you don't know what folks have put in the ground in the past. There's a really good book called "Edible Wild Plants of Texas" by Mark Suter. It does a good job of education about the plants. It has lots of good pictures too for identification. Believe it or not, the Audubon Society also publishes some excellent field books on plant, tree, and mushroom identification and uses. They are all available at Amazon or elsewhere online. There's lots of room to hone your skills in the Sam Houston National Forest and in the Huntsville State Park. Enjoy!
