garden of edible weeds in city yard, ellie hadsall

Mother Nature has planted a garden of delicious greens in youryard!

Definition of a weed: “A plant that is not valued where it is growing; usually of vigorous growth.” If we value a wild plant, it is no longer a weed; instead it becomes a desired plant in Mother Nature’s garden.

If you have a yard, or access to an untreated natural field, you can:

  • Eat organic, non-GMO greens daily, for free!
  • Enjoy a full range of potent vitamins and minerals.
  • Gather plants with no need to water, weed, or tend.

I was raised on a 300 acre farm in Kansas. Dad knew the name of every wild plant and Mom often served them with meals. She added leaves of wild violets and dandelions to our salads. Young Poke Salat leaves and lambsquarter leaves were cooked and served alongside the standard meat and potatoes.
