Re: bunnies/ edibles

Went to a NPSOT (TX. Native plant society) meeting the other night.   The 
program was on edible natives.  The guest speaker had prepared the  entire table 
of refreshments for us, with among other things....Yaupon tea and  Sassafras 
tea to drink.  Hors d'eauvres of dips with various natives.   Salads of 
dandilion flowers/leaves and root, Redbud and Mexican Plum flowers,  and what I liked 
the most......flowers and leaves of the Oxalis.  They also  had a plate of 
Red maple seeds.....the winged type, but you only eat the nut  part.   Ugh, that 
was probably the least appetizing of them all.   We were told that they were 
most nutritious though.....but we all figured you'd  have to be starving to 
eat those over the other things.
It was most interesting program....and made even nicer by being able to try  
the things in person.  I might have read about eating a blossom from the  
Redbud, but probably would not have attempted it.  My favorite, that I will  
definitely do, is add the Oxalis leaves and flowers to salads....that really  
tasted great.
So....not just for bunnies......people too.

Oh, and  they love dandilions and maple leaves.  Red clover was another 
favorite  of our rabbits.
