Re: “Farmers Market Kitchen: Shoots 'n' Ranch

Are you aware of how publishing articles about using wild plants for cooking leads to "tragedy of the commons"? Ostrich ferns and wild leeks/ramps are being severely over-harvested. Check Winooski Valley Park District sites. Formerly widespread plants (think Passenger Pigeons) are becoming severely overharvested and the unthinkable may happen with these species: sought by loyal localvore/forager readers and creating increased demand by restaurants and natural food stores. My first reaction to this article was "Oh no!!!!! Now Solomon's Seal, too"?? Not nearly as widespread as the above plants. Publishing articles like this is ethically irresponsible to our local ecological communities! Encourage consumption with recipes, etc. for invasive wild edibles instead, every year, e.g. Garlic Mustard, Japanese Bamboo. Make it a win, win, for the environment, not a repeat of the Passenger Pigeon fiasco!
