Re: It’s spring time, eat some wild edible plants
Wild lettuce is coming onalong with chickweed and dandelions for salad I like young Russian thistle, cut while in the rosette stage before the stem shoots up. Trim the stickers off the leaf edges and boil up like spinach. It has a mild flavor which I like much better than spinach. This is a much under rated wild food. This year I want to try peeling the stems and cooking like asparagus, and also the roots.

Burdock roots are very popular in Japan, where they cultivate it. I've not tried it, as we have so little here that I just let it be.

My daughter is showing a lot of interest now in learning about the wild plants, which makes me very glad. I've showed my grandsons a few plants and my younger grandson really impressed a friend when he fixed the friend's nettle stings with dock like his grandma showed him. It kind of impressed me that he remembered it and put it to use!

That's good to know ! I've observed cats also like to munch on onion grass, even tho' many vets today advise against giving cats onions or garlic,years ago I had an encyclopedia of Pet remedies and garlic and onions were recommended to feed them for anti-parasitical and flea repellent properties....
i just wonder why current day vets would advise against this,
unless it's greed based to steer people into buying expensive chemicals...?

Stop with the face. The 17-year periodical cicadas about to emerge are considered a delicacy. You can have your cake and eat cicadas, too.

ACROSS AMERICA — By now, you've probably heard all the noise about the billions of 17-year periodical cicadas, whose emergence from the Earth is one of the true marvels of nature, that will be tuning up this spring.

Did you know you can eat these nutritious, red-eyed bugs that are high in protein and low in fat? Deep fry them and serve with a hot mustard dipping sauce. Marinate them in teriyaki sauce. Bake them into a cake or pie. Put them in a dumpling. You name it.

Now that you've rearranged your face, know this: They're called the "shrimp of the land."

"We regularly eat the arthropods of the sea, and those are the shrimp, lobster and crabs," Betancourt told the news outlet, noting that "cicadas are arthropods, too."

Some who have dined on cicadas say they even taste a little like shrimp, according to Food & Wine.


The best time to harvest cicadas (again, stop making that face) is just after they emerge when they are molting — that is, shedding their skin. Morning hours are best, Betancourt told Lancaster Online.

"That's when they're softest," she said. "When they first emerge, they'll be kind of green in color, and after a few hours they'll harden."

They're still edible after hardening, but crunchy.


"I've had them several different ways and, frankly, I've enjoyed them every way I've eaten them," Raupp told Lancaster Online.

Gaye Williams, an entomologist with the Maryland Department of Agriculture, called them "the truffles of the insect world" in a 2004 interview with The Baltimore Sun.


"Americans are the only ones around who are grossed out by eating insects," Williams told The Sun. "For most people around the world, insects are a major food source or delicacy."

After all the dead/cooked food we eat in the winter months, I love to eat the first fresh greens that come up in the spring as a digestive restorative purge/cleanse. I usually have a salad with dandelion leaves, arugula, watercress (peppergrass), chives, onions, parsley and any volunteer greens that have come up like lettuce, kale and spinach.

Re: It’s spring time, eat some wild edible plants
Be very careful to never eat plants you're not 100% sure of. Things like hemlock can easily be confused with something else and will kill you. When studying wild edibles (beyond the usual dandelions and chickweed) you should take tours with very knowledgeable and reputable botanists or foragers. There's more to it than looking at pictures.

When in doubt leave it out.
