Pretty much all that is growing in the garden right now (besides a few lonely spring bulbs) are weeds. I know! How dare those weeds enter our garden.
Sadly, there are only 2 small clumps of chickweed. Sadly? Yes, sadly! This is pretty tasty stuff. It would be a great addition to your salad tonight, if you can find some. It tastes a bit like raw corn on the front end, and has an earthy, beet-y flavor for the finish.
Actually, any number of common garden weeds are edible, especially the young, tender versions of those weeds. Of course dandelion is a fairly common edible. Other edible weeds include purslane, lambsquarters, pigweed, stinging nettles, plantain, sheep’s sorrel, burdock roots, and violet or Johnny Jump Up flowers. You can probably find a few more if you do some research.
Of course, if you’re going to start eating the weeds out of your garden or yard, make sure you haven’t used anything toxic (or had pets) in the area recently!
