Many of our most rampant seed-throwing weeds are edible, and what’s more they are nutritious, often having much higher vitamin and mineral levels than cultivated greens. Throw a bit in your salads, steam them like spinach, add a handful to your fruit smoothies — you might be surprised!
They’re free, they’re nutritious, they’re available all winter long right in your yard. And while you harvest you’re weeding! Can’t beat that.

Please use caution when harvesting — look carefully at the links & photos and double check with resources. Eating misidentified plants would not be a good idea!
