Blackberry Rubus allegheniensis

Date

June 1, 2013 12:18 PM EDT

Description

bramble, tentative ID is Common (High-Bush) Blackberry, Rubus allegheniensis: stems pubescent hairy, many glandular-tipped, plus scattered bristles and prickles; blackberries are a complex group (Fernald lists 122 species, although I suspect they are mostly varieties, ssp., synonyms, or hybrids with R. setosus and R. pensylvanicus); shrub was on the sunny edge of our campsite where a large tree had been cut down between the camper pad and the mature forest, so the habitat is manipulated if not maintained; photo refs.

Eastern Teaberry Gaultheria procumbens

Date

June 1, 2013 09:31 AM EDT

Description

American Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens), a.k.a Eastern Teaberry has flowers like blueberry [see Newcomb's p. 212]; the exact habitat was not recorded, but it was either field, field-edge or woods (the edible-plants field trip crossed a field and entered a woods just north of Camp Allegany); photo ref. = Wintergreen_ANP_©DaveSpier_D081109iN
I doubt this is Partridgeberry (Mitchella repens) which has leaves with untoothed edges and a double-flower bud [see Newcomb's p. 156]; for Partridgeberry photos see http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/527999 and http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/528572

Garlic Mustard Alliaria petiolata

Date

June 1, 2013 09:20 AM EDT

Description

young leaves are edible; or make pesto out of leaves (edible plants hike); Garlic Mustard (Alliaria petiolata) is a biennial. It takes two years to fully mature and go to seed. The first year, it produces only a few rounded to heart-shaped leaves as it concentrates on growing a root system. The second year, new and larger leaves (more triangular and coarsely toothed around the edges) emerge. A stem averaging one to two feet high sprouts a cluster of small, white flowers, each with four petals. These produce long, thin seed tubes that eventually dry, split and release two rows of numerous black seeds to start the process over again.
This invasive weed was brought here from Europe and Asia in the 1860's, probably to be used as a potherb. Various recipes can be found on the internet and involve using young leaves and flowerbuds and to a lesser extent flowers and seeds. This is another case of "eat it, if you can't beat it."
