I'm not the only crazy in this town looking in the woods for food
Probably about a week ago I was coming back to the shop from the hardware store. I spotted 2 ladies at the edge of the woods, plastic bags in hand. I knew they were on the hunt for something good. They looked a little frightened as I approached. I think they thought they were in trouble or something. I just asked what they found good in the woods. They appeared to be Mediterranean - Lebanese at a guess. They were picking grape leaves! I had seen vines growing around in the back woods and never thought that they might be wild grapes. I will watch to see if they bear any fruit as the summer goes on.
