This time of year when you are out walking and you smell an awesome flowery smell, to the point where you are looking around for the flower, look up, because very likely Black Locust Flowers are what you are smelling.
These are very best eaten raw, they are incredibly sweet-tasting and flowery. They are excellent just to nibble while you are out walking, to throw on salad, into a smoothie, or put in your water for a delicious tasting flower water.
If you aren’t in Pittsburgh and can’t make it Sunday, we’ll take excellent pictures and post more information for you so you can go find these treats yourself.
Other highlights promise to be: mulberry trees! They are full of unripe mulberries right now, but in a few weeks they’ll be ripe, juicy and sweet. Come find out how to identify these trees and berries as well.
Plus we’ll see how our old friends are doing: dandelion, burdock, mugwort, garlic mustard. You’ll be surprised to see how some of these plants have grown!

Hope to see you soon!
