So I can recognize the yarrow plant that I'm sure will survive if I do. Helps with inflammation, right? And has other medicinal properties. Couldn't decide between this and chokecherry for food, needles, but pretty sure if I can't recognize chokecherries, I'll have bigger problems than gathering plants.
