If you know of wild fruit, berry or nut producing plants or trees in your area, don't forget to feed them too. My grandmother would go out just before spring and feed wild plants and trees to help them produce a better-quality fruit or nut. She'd cast fertilizer on the uphill side of blackberry bushes and drill small holes around hickory and walnut trees putting fertilizer in the holes. She'd then harvest the fruit for jams and nuts for the winter.

I'll do that today when I find oak trees, wild grapes or other mast trees in the woods. I'll go back in the fall and hunt deer and squirrels when they're attracted to the mast fall.
