    As general rules, yes. But what about Queen Anne’s Lace?

    Also, before touching any plant, you should know how to identify poison ivy, oak, and sumac.

    well he says if it has any hair on it. nettles have hair on them but they are edible. boil the leaves and have a nettle tea, also pines from evergreens are mostly edible when boiled in water.

    I’ve chewed on hemlock before and nothing happened. I used to rub the flowers on my hands too and smell them.

  7. now this is a very helpful tip to remember, i wouldn’t mind being stranded in the wilderness as long as i had someone like Reggie Bennett with me.
