I'm interested in learning to forage, but I have no idea where to even start. I know this fall I'm going to be taking advantage of the black walnuts nobody seems to want in my town. I was hoping someone on here has had experience with foraging in this state though and could give me hints on where to start and/or how to find more information on it. I live in mid missouri, by the way.
I'm also hoping to start fishing more this year, and to be able to eat what I catch. I don't expect to strike it especially lucky this year, and I know it will never be my main source of protein as my hubs isn't super fond of catfish, but I am hoping that in the future I'll be able to eat least decently supplement my food supply with home caught food. Any special fishing holes throughout the state that you can recommend? I know that often there are secrets to the trade, lol.
In general I'd like to welcome any locavores to this thread and hope we can help each other out! I'll be. back more later from what I've found in mid missouri anyway
