Mission Statement

My goal with mande plants is to teach about medicinal and edible plants, show how to grow these plants, where to find these plants, and how to use these plants. There are many useful botanicals in our world. I will growing seasonal crops and perennial edibles using organic methods as best as possible. One of my long term goals is to grow a temperate food forest garden. As I grow new plants and harvest them I will be sharing photos and details on this blog. All photos on this blog are taken by me. If you like this blog and you would like to help me further my research you can use the paypal donate button on the right. All donations will be used to buy tools, plants, seeds, and pay for expenses needed to develop gardens.

Fairy Lanterns, Pretty Face and Blue Dicks

These three Wild Flowers are found in the Sierra Nevada foothills. All three have edible bulbs and corms that may be eaten raw or roasted. The Blue Dicks have edible flowers as well. Because the edible portions are small and eating these will end the life of these flowers I recommend limiting how many you consume.
