Weeds are our Friends

What a great year for adding weeds to the morning green smoothie! The lambs quarters are thick and buttery, the sow thistle is tender and not too bitter, and the dandelions are - um - everywhere. I am growing some spinach, but our smoothies contain mostly wild greens. The neighbours have kindly and unknowingly donated the odd mint leaf, which adds to the flavour. Photos are of lambs quarters (at top - happy among the peas), plantain (another edible high in nutrients) and the tall sow thistle. Smoothie away - just remember to remove the stems and centre veins before you blend.
