Identifying Wild Plants
This is the first video on our series about wild plants where I go out and find plants in my area of Colorado. This is how I identify new plants that I don't know, and want to learn about. Learning wild edibles can be a difficult task. Just watching a video or comparing a plant from your memory to one you found out in the wild is nearly impossible. Its not much simpler when trying to find and identify the plant in a single book. I recommend you take your books out into the field, pick one plant and then sit down next to that plant with multiple books, and study it thoroughly. Here are some tips on what to do when you want to learn what a wild plant is.
