You'll understand that reference in the title after you see this flick about organic food that Tom Campbell found.
Well, the Farm is definitely with me. I went in the backyard this afternoon to gather a salad, and the garden is absolutely rockin'! BT came out with me, so I got a chance to teach him about treating the plants with respect (we take care not to step on our weeds).. The goosefoot that I had seen coming up previously is growing the biggest, fattest leaves I've ever seen on a goosefoot. And I've got some purslane! I'd had a little of this a couple years ago, but it was very small and skinny. The stuff out there now looks really robust. And purslane is so good for you, too! Also, the wood sorrel this season is the biggest it's ever been. Throw in some sow thistle leaves and a few clover flowers, and it was a salad that'll make your day!
I suspect that the bumper crop of weeds is the result of our record-setting rainfall this year. That means that I could have bigger and better salads all the time if I would get out there and water the yard now and then. Susun Weed recommends tending your nourishing weeds with the same care as any other plant in your garden. So I'm going to start watering my weeds occasionally.
I used to think that eating organic meant driving long distances to pay high prices for food that's not available in my neighborhood. It was so amazing to learn that right at my feet are organic foods that are delicious, plentiful, and free! Susun Weed also has lots of info about the health-enhancing qualities of many wild plants. It's a thin line between nutrient-packed herbal foods and the mildest and safest of the natural herbal medicines. May the Farm/Pharm be with you!
