Eat your weeds (and peashoots)

weeds and peashoots

I grew some pea plants just for the shoots. You can get some early greens that way. Some people like to grow them indoors in the winter.

Lamb’s quarters grow so well and can be eaten raw or cooked like spinach. It tastes like mild green leafiness. I let some lamb’s quarters go to seed last fall and there are hundreds of tiny sprouts everywhere in one of my raised bed. Luckily it’s both edible and easy to pull.

Chickweed started growing in one of my planters and I just gave it a trim to add to my salad. It tastes a bit like corn.

This week I’ll start harvesting¬†lettuce and a few raddishes too.
