Living Off the Land

During the encampment last month, one of the activities for the boys was called “Living off the Land,” in which they were taught what plants on the property were edible and which were not. It was no surprise, then, that at the First Friday activities this month, certain little boys, at least one of which had not been on the encampment, were raiding all the presumably edible purple flowers.

I had not actually attended the class and I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between dandelion leaves and deadly nightshade, so I did not really know what to tell the panicked mothers. The next day the friars found half-eaten purple flowers all over the parking lot.

Turns out they are clover flowers. Not a problem. Watch.
