Why feel guilty about the weeds in your backyard when you can harvest them?? As an apartment dweller not long ago, I urban foraged the weeds along the sidewalk edges of people's lawns. Now I have plenty of weeds in my own backyard! Though, of course, I might like to have a little more intentional growth as well someday...
We recently had a whole lot of bushy dandelions that were thriving. I pulled them and harvested the roots for roasted dandelion coffee. It makes for a neat variation on your standard cup of coffee - sort of like chicory coffee in New Orleans.
I followed instructions from Prodigal Gardens.
