  • Lambsquarter is one of my favorites.

    I love spinach and in my opinion lambsquarters tastes even better.

      I first learned about it from the Christopher Nyerges "EXPLORING EDIBLE WILD FOODS" DVD.

          .... but I agree taste good and it's good for ya. The things folks mow down and pave over astound me.

            Must be a regional difference. One of the identifiers in the Christopher Nyerges DVD was the red splotch on the main stalk junctions going to the leaves.

              Chenopodium album....

              Grows all over, taste like spinach (closely related to spinach and beets), very nutritious. Good stuff!

                Lambsquarter is a very mild wild green, great for 'toning down' stronger-tasting wild greens such as curly dock and polk salit.

                  That is a good point-- so are violet leaves.

                    So good for you. Has so much more minerals that anything store brought. High in Vit A & C
                    Pine Needle tea is really high in Vit C

                            It grows all over in disturbed ground- try the edge of farm fields, or construction sites
