Eating fresh picked weeds
I just had my first taste of henbit and purple archangel while weeding in the community garden. Henbit (which is also well liked by our egg-laying bird friends) I knew from childhood as an edible flower with a tiny drop of nectar. I never knew you could eat it for fresh spring greens! I also tried purple archangel Lamium purpureum?) which was very earthy and not as good as the henbit. I already knew you could eat wood sorrel, we used to chew on it as kids and called it sourgrass. Now that I have almost run out of orange juice I am glad the wood sorrel is springing up every where! Our garden is organic--am a bit leery of eating it out of my common yards where the HOA likes to spray glyphoglop.
