Eating Your Yard - The Ultimate Locavore

The first green sprigs of Spring probably excite me more than most folks. Not only can I now clean out the ashes from the wood stove (my only source of winter heat) but I see this new growth, not as nature's miracle of rebirth and a harbinger of warmer weather, but as tender infant plants about to be sacrificed to the salad bowl. Many, if not most, common yard weeds are edible as long as your lawn has not been chemically-enhanced, so remember, a friend with weeds is a friend indeed...
