Cherie, seriously you ate Burdock and Lambs Quarters? We here in row crop farm country consider those weeds to be eradicated. How do you fix weeds to eat? :-) I'm learning that almost all the plants that I thought were bad weeds are edible and are nutritious. Imagine that. I guess maybe God had a plan, huh. I never get too old to learn more about plants. Thanks for educating me on these two.

Have a great foraging wild edible plants day.

David, lambs quarters are delicious and taste (and can be prepared) like spinach. I've seen references to it being sold at farmers' markets. think I piked burdock leaves that were a bit too old so had a bitter taste. I had an easy soup recipe that I found in a wild edibles book and I'll try again another time. Yes, it's amazing how many "weeds" are edible or useful.
