Along with gardening season comes the battle with weeds. They compete for soil nutrients, sunlight, and they enjoy disturbed soil. But did you know that many common garden weeds are actually edible? In some cases, they’re quite nutritious and delicious. The following is a list of seven common edible weeds. At least one of them, and, depending on where in North America you live, perhaps a handful of them may be growing in your yard right now. While it’s exciting to find free food and medicinal plants growing in your yard, be sure you positively identify your plants before eating. If you’re not sure, contact your local university extension.
