harvesting fiddleheads

I have just returned from our Ostrich fern patch in the corner of the marsh. I guess it's higher ground there.

I can't beleive how big the clumps were, my hand could barely encompass them as I held them to cut them with my other hand.

I harvested in volume the size of a 20 lb bag of potatoes! I can't beleive how many there are down there.

I learned last year how to prepare fiddleheads. I'm trying to harvest everything from the wild that I can this year. I'm amazed at how much gardening time, effort and challenge harvesting these fiddleheads is saving me!
