Today we went to Hug Point State Park and to Neahkahnie Mountain. The weather was perfect today and it felt good to put my feet on the sand and wander in the amazing ocean.
We learned about the Apiaceae (Umbelliferae) or Carrot Family; with the flowers in umbel or compound umbels, the stems tent to be ribbed and hallow and have sheathing petioles.
Plants in the Umbel family look much a like and with two of the deadliest plants in our area, Water Hemlock and Poison Hemlock, being in this family. Much further training is required before considering harvest.
