If weeds are cropping up in your lawn, it may be time to get revenge by harvesting some of them for your dinner table. You may ask yourself, why eat weeds when there’s a garden or 24-hour supermarket nearby? There are many good reasons! Weeds, otherwise known as wild plants, are nearly always more nutritious than cultivated vegetables. That’s because farmers bred the bitterness out of most commonly consumed plants, and many nutrients (which have a sour, bitter, or astringent taste) were stripped away in the process.
