Picking weeds

The garden and yard is always full of weeds that need to be picked. The kids love them and always find beauty in each little one they find. We have tiny bouquets all over the house. We have also started to enjoy eating them. We have learned about so many different weeds that are edible and delicious. The kids run out in the yard and grab some chickweed to munch on and my sister in law turned me on to a big patch of wild garlic mustard that I picked and made a yummy little salad with. Yes, we are growing all kinds of veggies now in our new garden beds, but I want to make sure that we don't forget natures gift of all the beautiful and yummy weeds that grow all around us.
