Lamb’s Quarters

Lamb’s Quarters (chenopodium album) is considered an edible weed. But go ahead and grow it on purpose. Put it with the kale and the lettuce; civilized like. Pampered, it’s much more tender, and cooked it is much tastier than spinach. Throw some radish greens into the mix. They’re prickly, but cooking  sees to that. Oh, and add turnip tops; the bottoms do better in the fall anyway.

    Oh we had been eating so much lamb quarters recently, and I love them. My mom complained that not too many grow in the garden. Will have to convince her to plant some 🙂

      Here they grow in ALL the gardens :). I just decide which bed they get to stay in.
