Here's a website you might like to take a look at: Littleflowers medicine plants

Thanks for the suggestion.  When in doubt about hyperlinks, I just cut and paste the whole address into the document.   :)

I did a web search though, and came up with this--are either of these places what you were thinking of?  Regardless, they both look really helpful!

To answer ya.paw paws are like a cross between a bannana and a pear.utter joy to eat, particular after hicking or hunting for miles...persimons are pure sugar and flavor....they grow in groves like weeds.....but BOTH plants need to pass through the intestines of mammals ie coons possums etc....or can be artificial abraded to get them to grow. :)

That littleflower's medicine plast has a cool "soundtrack."  Right now, it's open in a different window, and it sounds like I'm in the woods.   8)

Hey Buzz...I'm a mammal.   :D :D

Was runniing the daughter to softball practice last night and noticed the incredible abundance of juneberries in full bloom.  This might be a banner year--if this weekend's snow storm doesn't wipe them all out!  Just run down any area back road and you'll see the brilliance of pure-white petals everywhere!  Our picking spots are located for the end of June!

Hope you get enough for the jam.
