Edible Wild Greens
Time for spring tonics and wild greens. I've been eating from the bounty of my yard, aka weedpatch. So far, I've had lamb's quarters as cooked greens, purslane in my salad, and dandelion greens as both cooked greens and salad. Free food! Who could ask for more from nature? Okay, maybe I could ask for honey, but that would require the cooperation of bees and I don't have a hive, anyway. I do have lettuce and radishes in my garden. Soon the beets will be ready. Gotta wait a while for beans and tomatoes. So much to look forward to!
