All the Foods I’ve Grown and Foraged
Wondering what I’m eating during my year of growing and foraging 100% of my food?
If yes, then this page is for you!
I have listed every food that I have eaten so far, and I will update this page every month. This list is currently updated as of day 210 of the project, 06/09/2019.
I have split the list into two sections: foods that I have grown and foods that I have foraged. I do not have any specific order, however the two sections are generally in order of foods that I ate first in the year. I started off also listing the foods that I had eaten the most of first, but need to work on that system. I’ve only sampled many of the foods listed on a hike, others are staples that I eat daily or multiple times per week. It is also possible that I have forgotten to add a few foods to this list. Those, I may have learned about on a foraging walk or only grew a small amount and have forgotten. As of today I have grown over 100 different foods and foraged over 80 different foods.
This page does not explain the meals and dishes that I create with the food that I grow and forage. I have only listed each species (or as some would say, ingredient).
Herbs: African blue basil, Cuban oregano, holy basil (2 types), garlic chive, bunching/ green onion, mint (multiple types), rosemary, lemon grass, Italian basil, Thai basil, papalo, ginger, turmeric, green tea, cilantro, garlic greens, dill, fennel, thyme, oregano, tarragon, curry leaf tree, chamomile, garlic, lemon bee balm, parsley, Costa Rican bush mint, yerba buena, lemon balm, sage, dill seeds, coriander
