Duncan is foraging and crowd sourcing

Duncan Blitz discovered a sprig of finely shredded arugula.  Curls of ramps were hiding nearby.   There was even what appeared to be raspberries and wild mushrooms tucked in a shady glen.    What a yield, thought Duncan, as he inspected his string of dental floss, and tossed it aside.   The New Mexico food scene had definitely improved with the opening of the "Mad Nordic Copenhagen" cafe in Santa Fe.   So had Duncan's social life after shooting the video for a Kickstarter project called "Bees in our Bonnet," a startup company producing habanero honey (infused with with scotch bonnet chile peppers.)  I like these crowd sourcing people, thought Duncan, his life, for once, looking up.

On the way home from dinner, Duncan pulled off Highway 14, the Turquoise Trail, and looked at meadow, mountain and sky.  He contemplated pinon nuts and prickly pears for the picking, dandelion greens and stinging nettles, thorny brambles, choke cherries and elderberries.  Delicacies were all around, if you let yourself find them.
