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

    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

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

    Chenopodium album....

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

    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.

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