edibleweeds

An adult mullein plant, about ready to bloom. The flower and leaves of this plant can be brewed into a tea to relieve respiratory problems. In spring you will see these common weeds in fields and along tree lines as flat low lying pale green leaf clusters, unmistakeable for their soft fuzzy light blueish green color. As they mature they develop a stalk and grow tall, producing a yellow flower bud as the leaves turn a more vivid green. These can be found year round in North America. #mullein #wildedibles #wildmedicine #medicinalplants #outdoors #foraging #spring #summer #medicibalweeds #edibleweeds

Apparently the dandelion is the only plant that symbolises the three celestial bodies: the sun 🌞(yellow flowers), the moon 🌙 (puff ball) and the stars ✨(scattering seeds). Dandelions have been used as medicine for thousands of years due to their high nutritional value... How odd it seems then, that this beautiful and useful plant is often perceived as a pesky weed that needs to be destroyed with the use of nasty herbicides... ?!? Just a thought 😜🌿 Beautiful pic via @adamantiapoliti x

It can be hard to tell the difference between a dandelion and a catsear. Both look almost identical, until you get up close. Dandelion flowers are formed on single, unbranched, hairless and hollow stems. Catsears are the opposite. Dandelion plants are completely edible. Catsears will make you sick. Dandies enjoy the weather of the southern states of Australia and rarely grow up north, while catsears love Queensland humidity and grow like crazy. But, last year I manged to buy a dandelion plant from a nursery, and after careful treatment I'm now finally getting flowers!! Yippee!! My mind is busy thinking of all the ways to use these cuties 🌻 #dandelion #catsear #dandelionflower #edibleweeds #wildcraft #simplethingsmakemehappy #dandelions #naturalmeds #herbalapothecary #herbsforhealth #simplepleasures #raiseyourvibration #loveandlight #wildwomen #womenwhorunwiththewolves #gardentherapy #gardenwitch #witchythings #greenwitch #shineyourlight #herbsthatheal

The kid thought I needed more garden pests. 😜

Weeded the hoophouse of lambsquarters yesterday— one of the healthiest weeds there is! Like, superfood healthy. Hopefully kept it cool enough in the basement yesterday to still use today since I didn’t get around to it yesterday. Going to make a soup with asparagus (basically substituting it for spinach), and some crock pot mashed potatoes with greens. - #urbangardening #vegetablegarden #lambsquarters #edibleweeds #foraging

Stinging Nettle season! Slide ➡ to view more images. Eat seasonal wild greens and you will get all the vitamins your body needs to get through the season without catching any nasty flu bugs plus keeping your immune system and belly happy with fresh nourishing greens 😋 Just make sure they haven't been sprayed with any chemicals or picked from the side of the road where its polluted and sprayed by local councils. Oh and wear heavy duty gloves to harvest the tender tips. I will also be drying some of the stinging nettle to make medicinal herbal tea as a natural #antiinflammatory, #womenstonic and #antihistamine 😉 #gardendelights #healthyliving #supergreens #organic #eatyourgreens #edibleweeds #goodness #naturaltherapy #yummyinmytummy #mykitchen #mygarden #balance #food #herbaltherapy #gardentoplate #seasonaleating #foodporn #instafood

Sand plums are coming out!

De laatste aardbeien van dit seizoen. Misschien dat de doordragers in de nazomer nog wat vruchten geven. En deze week ook de laatste rabarber en laatste groene asperges. En de langste dag op de 21ste. #smultuin #volkstuin #moestuin #stadstuin #balkon #smulbalkon #ediblegarden #garden #gardener #gardenlove #gardenrose #gardenlover #gardengirl #gardendesign #gardensalad #gardenstyle #edibleart #edibleweeds

🌱 From now until Spring when it gives us a beautiful edible flower 🙌🏼 Onion weed is my absolute favourite wild herb . 🌱At the moment it’s juicy stalks have turned the damp banks of our garden into a edible lawn! . 🌱 A perfect alternative for chives & spring onion, I can just pop out & grab a handful to add to scones, fritters, soups and salads . 🌱 Onion weed has a lovely delicate onion flavour and you can use it liberally . 🌱 They have triangular stalks & smell like onions, don’t confuse them with snow drops . 🌱 The entire plant is edible 👏🏼 So go out & enjoy this free gift from Papatuanuku & instead of fighting it 😫 eat it up! . 🌱 Plus when it does flower, if you are eating the flowers then they won’t spread so much ☺️ You can even tempura batter the flowers in the spring time, trust me they are absolutely devine! .

My wild nasturtiums are going crazy again. I have to tread all over them to get in the car, and I will soon be driving over them once they creep across the driveway. I let them go over winter because they help keep the weeds at bay. #nasturtiums #wildnasturtium #growingwild #takingover #waitingfortheflowers #edibleplants #edibles #edibleflowers #edibleweeds #foraging #foragingforfood #whenplantstakeover #gardening #plants
