    “Around the World in 80 Plants is more than just excellent profiles of little-known delicious vegetable crops.

      Many years ago, Scott and I bought a book called Edible and Medicinal Plants of the West. We were inspired to get it after a Labor Day weekend camping trip where we discovered wild huckleberries growing near our campsite. Each morning we had huckleberry pancakes. Ever since we’ve had fun finding new, wild edible plants.   The "Peterson Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants" is a good all-around book covering the common edible and dangerous plants found throughout Author: Tony Nester.

      In an article published earlier this summer, Live Science collected some easy-to-identify healthful weeds, including: Dandelion: The entire plant is edible, and the leaves contain vitamins A, C and K, along with calcium, iron, manganese, and potassium. Purslane: Purslane tops the list of plants with omega-3 fats. Lamb’s-quarters: Lamb’s-quarters are like spinach, except healthier, tastier. This is one edible plant that I’m sure your already familiar with. A dandelion is considered one of the most common weeds and you can find them all over – in gardens, your lawn, fields and parks. You can eat the leaves, flower buds, flower petals and roots.
