I am now contributing to Survival Cache, a blog on survival topics. Check out the link below on "Emergency Foods from Wild Plants" and keep an eye out for future articles on wild foods and other survival topics like bushcraft skills and survival tools.

Unfortunately, I was unable to get a picture of this species when it was in flower a while black. I will continue to post pictures and notes about Violets in the coming weeks. Eventually I will put it together into something comprehensive, but in the meanwhile I will continue posting work-in-progress style, as I have been with Russula identification for the Delaware Highlands Mushroom Society (see member page).
