This September we return to the generous bounties of Orchards Forever where the apple-loving Peg will host The Festival of the Trees 51 for her third issue.

Our theme for Festival 51 is edible trees. Peg wants to tap the wealth of bloggers (and everyone else online) who are bringing in the harvest or planting the spring saplings with visions of sugar plums (or plum cakes) dancing in their heads.

We humans gather many foods from trees, including fruits, seeds and nuts, and some of us leaves and bark. Peg encourages us to share the wonderful tree-derived dishes we cook up, including recipes for ciders, juices, meals, and treats. Are you planting a backyard orchard? Did you beat the birds to the mulberries this year? Perhaps you’ve visited the Forestiere Underground Gardens? Could you sneak us a peek at your heirloom trees? Tell us about your favorite edible trees and share your tree-inspired picnic delights.
