The Wild Turkeys are Hungry

We have a flock of about 40 wild turkeys here, It has been so cold they are looking for food. Poor things- I would put them in the barn if I could to stay warm. But they are wild.
These are pictures of them on the crab apple trees by the house.

These are 30 lb birds in the trees. quite something to see them perch like this.

I am a wife- mother -and grandmother. I was hit with undiagnosed Lyme disease 20 years ago and just found out what was killing me in May of 2013, It has been a long road back to health and a journey that I am still on. My love has always been wild harvesting and eating. I love to fish, pick mushrooms and garden. I have made my own medicines and harvested what I pick wild for many years, I grow herbs and vegetables. I live on 5.5 acres with my husband and dogs and cats. we bought this property in July 2013 and am getting ready for chickens this spring. I am making Product to bring to the farmers market This summer in Spooner and planting herbs to sell there too. I hope that I can help people learn about what they don't know concerning the foods and medicines that are all around us that don't come for a grocery store. I hope you will come along with me and interact so you can learn about wild things, Especially the lowly dandelion who I believe is a queen. I will talk about many other herbs that are under your feet. Natures pharmacy is outside of your door.
