More Edible Weeds for Our Nutrition
My article on Purslane in July got Anne, a subscriber to check out the weeds in her garden, and she sent me links to check out pigweed.
What do you know? I've got that in my garden too! But I've been disposing of it in the garbage bin!
I've checked out some links Anne sent, for photos of what the different types of pigweed look like, https://www.ediblewildfood.com/pigweed.aspx
Then I branched out my search and found even more. More varieties of pigweed photos here.
Then I discovered links to YouTube videos, and almost right away this one. I was really warming up to going into my garden took for this pigweed! In case I'd missed any in my thorough weeding.
Then up came an even more excellent one! Stinging Nettles - Most Nutritious Food on Earth. (Note: there are lots of interesting conversations in the notes and feedback below this video!). I did know about stinging nettle and keep a bag of dried nettle in my tea cupboard, but I had forgotten all it can do for us.
One thing led to another, until I realized that I needed to DECIDE to stop, or I wouldn't get this article written. Besides, if I give you too many links, this email may be filtered out and end up in a folder where you don't normally find, or look for it.
Another point is that this topic is so wide, and there is so much information to share that it is very possible to get lost in details.
Another time I might do a more in-depth article on just one of these edible herbs. If this topic interests you, just do a Google search for "edible weeds" or plants, and follow some links. You'll soon get a fascinating education!
Come on My Virtual Garden Tour
The weekend before last, I invited some friends to a Garden Tour on Sunday afternoon. It was windy, and some friends only got their invitation on Sunday morning, so it didn't suit everyone to come. I had one couple and their daughter come. Also my neighbour, Rita came to see my flowers which are - for most of them - at their peak at this time in the summer. As August marches on, the garden begins to die off, and it is time to start harvesting my herbs and vegetables and take them in for the winter.
Another reason for this invitation to tour my garden is that when I've said to friends, "Come by some time and see my flowers," they agree, but they don't show up unless I give them a specific invitation. That's why I choose that Sunday to deliberately invite the friends who showed the most interest to come.
Other friends living further away wished they could come, so I decided to do what I've done in the past, which was to prepare a photo tour of my garden, and send them a link. I spent nearly 5 hours on it last week, and put 36 photos on three pages.
So now I can give you the link to the first page (which reviews July in the garden) and from there at the end of each page you will find a link to the next page.
