Heh... we prefer the term "herbs". ;') Purslane, wintercress, lambsquarters... weeds, but also food, just not all that popular any longer.

My daughter organizes "herb walks" every season to harvest what's out there. I can't believe nature's bounty.

One of the favored "greens" of my gg grandparents while settling Utah was pig weed. Dandelion, cress....I can't believe this is a new "find."
