Good Old Maritime Fiddleheads

The early spring growth of Matteuccia struthiopteris (Ostrich Fern) is by far the Maritimes most famous green wild food and I’m decided today to share with you why I enjoy seeing them in nature more than eating them at the table. Click on the photos to visit up close where Ostrich Fern fiddleheads have grow most comfortably for thousands of years here in Maritimes.

    Great pictures. I know they are not easy to photograph. We are enjoying a good year with them here, but my first encounter and therefore association with them is still the Maritimes.
