There is one young couple down the road that has a garden....the rest of the people don't garden. I think another couple (both work at our tv station) are hinting of gardening for they have some bales of straw with items planted. I need to go and chat with them.

No does not sound good LFF. But if I were hungry and nothing else to eat I would try it.

Dandelions are considered weeds and they are good. There are other items that are considered weeds that humans can eat.

Maybe I should start a thread for edible weeds. Or someone else can if they like.

Thanks for the comment BLC
