City Nature Challenge is my Favourite Holiday

Paying the bills with an obscure blog.

I have a particular interest in wild edibles (+ the role they have to play in food sovereignty) and plants introduced to North America by my ancestors (+ Slavic folk remedies).

When it comes to identifying my own observations, I hold the belief that "pretty close" is better than perfect because I've learned so much from others correcting me - whereas my "unknowns" sit in iNaturalist purgatory. However, when identifying others' observations, I try to be certain before adding my thoughts. I'm always happy to explain my reasoning and willing to learn from my mistakes!
