An amazing weekend foraging with Tom Seymour at the Deer Isle Hostel in Maine. We had no idea what to expect when we signed up for the group tour. Then, I found out we were going to be spending the day with one of my favorite authors, Tom Seymour. Tom has written many books about foraging and fishing on the East Coast and in Maine. Finally, after years of trying to figure things out on my own, I finally had a real expert to guide and teach me.
We found lots of goodies on our walk. Too many to name in a short blog. But, a few of them included goose tongue, crooked dock, sea rocket, oxeye daisy (buds), indian cucumber, golden thread, sea bay, yarrow, and stag horn sumac. Our hosts, and hostel owners Anneli and Dennis were warm and welcoming, inviting us into their home for a shared meal after our trek through the fields, forest, and beach. What a great time! And, as if it could have gotten any better, Mom came along for the ride.
