Lambs Quarter, also referred to as "wild spinach", and dandelion.
I gathered a bowl of them and tossed my egg on top for a fresh breakfast salad. I remember talking to someone recently and was perplexed when they told me that they had never/ would never eat something straight out of a garden, because it creeped them out to think of it growing like that... Huh?
Well, I got my garden started about 2 weeks ago, but until it starts to produce sometime in June, I'll snoop around for edible weeds that popped up during that warm spell in March. There are a lot of things that I mainly only eat if I see it attached to the ground. Like cucumbers and tomatoes...
|Strawberries around the edges, and brococoli, onions, etc.|
|The kids will eat all these before they make it to the kitchen.|
|Warm spring temps have the hops already topping off the trellis.|
