Happy Hump Day!!
I hope everyone’s week is going well. We’re going camping this weekend.. about 13 miles away from home and only 1 mile from work. Is this a ‘stay-cation’? We haven’t hiked at the area et, however there is supposed to be OSPREY nesting here!!

Sagittaria latifolia is a plant found in shallow wetlands and is sometimes known as broadleaf arrowhead, duck-potato, Indian potato, or wapato. They are edible, and may be boiled or baked and eaten as a potato-like food. Native Americans harvested and consumed these tubers, which in some areas were known as wapato. The tubers are also an important food source for waterfowl, hence the name duck potato.
