You never know what might be in your basket.
Richard Tullis is an artist/photographer living with his wife Karen in Portland, Oregon. An amateur mycologist and organic gardener who forages wild foods in Oregon and southern Washington, he and his wife strive to live a locavore lifestyle. They grow much of their food during the summer, canning, freezing and drying the harvest for winter. Their garden is becoming a four-season operation as they learn more about organic gardening and find creative ways to keep their local deer from eating their crops. An avid cook, Richard loves to entertain friends and share their native backyard habitat with others.
