‘wild strawberries’ Jane Tims 2016


If you love picking berries, or eating those first dew-covered berries of summer, you will like my book of poems about gathering and eating wild local foods.

‘within easy reach’ is published by Chapel Street Editions in Woodstock, New Brunswick. The book is illustrated with my drawings and includes lots of information about each wild plant mentioned. The book is available here at Chapel Street Editions or here at

  1. I love the picture. I like all your artwork, but I think this one is my very favorite. This post brings back memories of picking wild strawberries with my children when they were small.
