Eating Your Weeds?
Maybe it was my upbringing on a Wisconsin dairy farm with a father who loved nature or maybe it was working for a farm that regularly sold unusual edibles to restaurants, but this article from the Wall Street Journal is not shocking to me. Maybe it is to some of you? I will say that my experience eating weeds is that they are not nearly as delicious as normal domesticated vegetables.

I admit to nibbling wood sorrel now and then (blame _My Side of the Mountain_), but I’m kind of amused by how much the WSJ list matches up with what the ducks eat in our yard.
Though yeah, given the choice they would rather forage in my domesticated vegetables.
