Eat the weeds: bittercress, purple dead nettle, dandelion

 Weeds? Many Americans are now crazy about weeds. They want to kill all weeds using toxic and carcinogenic chemicals. But many of the so called weeds are edible and nutritious. They serve as good vitamin C supplements in the winter.

I just collected some very young purple nettles, dandelions, and bittercress. They will be in my noodle soup tonight.

Pigweeds and Amaranths

Amaranths are super easy to grow and they are very drought tolerant compare to most European or Asian vegetables that you often find in the supermarkets. I grow different varieties of amaranths, some native and some non-native. 

My favorite is native pigweeds. I will collect a lot of amaranth seeds every year. I don't eat amaranth seeds, instead I do overseeding which allows me to do cut and regrow so that I can harvest amaranth leaves and young stems throughout the entire summer. Amaranths are easy to grow and very nutritious.
