As promised, here's a picture of Fiddleheads. They are, essentially, unfurled ferns which we pick the tops of and eat in the spring. They only grow wild--aren't cultivated. I usually steam them, and add some lemon and butter. Taste kind of like a cross between asparagus and artichoke. I used to have to buy them from people set up on the side of the road...but now you can get them at the local health food store, and even in the grocery store. Many Mainers consider them a seasonal treat. This photo looks nice enough to do a painting from (Hmmm....)
