Wild foods are available year round, even in the winter. This is a good time to explore the outdoors, when the insect population is reduced to a minimum, and the snakes have become mostly inactive. Trees have dropped their leaves, revealing fruits that before were concealed and now partially cover the green tips of woodland herbs on the forest floor. Finding food in the winter requires knowing where to look for edible plants, how to identify them without their leaves, and which parts can be eaten.
