Wild Gardens

miners lettuce

As spring is arriving, it is time to start thinking about our summer gardens both domestic and wild.  Just yesterday, I was outside and saw miner’s lettuce and dandelions growing wild.  The miners lettuce was in large patches and easy to pick.  At the yuppie farmers market a friend of mine is selling it for $17.00 a pound.  The joke is you can pick it for free just by going for a walk in the country.

Now is the best time of the year to start learning about the wild edible plants in your area.  The first thing is to find a good book and hopefully someone who knows the plants in your area. …
