About Edible Weeds in a City Yard

Don't Weed Your Yard; Munch Your Way Through It!

Mother Nature has planted a garden of delicious greens in your yard!

Definition  of a weed: “A plant that is not valued where it is growing; usually of  vigorous growth.” If we value a wild plant, it is no longer a weed;  instead it becomes a desired plant in Mother Nature’s garden.

If you have a yard, or access to an untreated natural field, you can:

  • Eat organic, non-GMO greens daily, for free!
  • Enjoy a full range of potent vitamins and minerals.
  • Gather plants with no need to water, weed, or tend.

I  was raised on a 300 acre farm in Kansas. Dad knew the name of every  wild plant and Mom often served them with meals. She added leaves of  wild violets and dandelions to our salads. Young Poke Salat leaves and  Lambsquarter leaves were cooked and served alongside the standard meat  and potatoes. 

To this day, whenever we move to a new house, I eagerly water to see if Lambsquarter will poke its mischievous head up through the dirt. We've lived in 5 states and it's never failed to show up. It thrives in the sun or shade and when drought wilts my gardens, Lambsquarter remains tall and elegant.
