30 Bananas a Day!

A good way to start would be to all make lists of what we already know to be common weeds that are edible.

Photos would also be helpful, but not essential, that is something that those that are committed can go out and research for themselves (if they don't already know exactly what the common weed already is) once they have the name.

Some of the ones that have been mentioned so far are

- Nettles
- Dandelion
- Purslane
- Young grape leaves

Please continue...

I'm trying to get my hands on a copy of Isabell Shippard's books 'how can i use herbs in my daily life' and 'how can i be prepared with self-sufficiency and survival foods?' these are jam packed with the edibles.

Green Smoothies are an important part of my diet, i travel a lot and people don't always have the usual cultivated greens in their garden, so often i go off and find what ever weeds i can to get my green hit. I too am after a sturdy list.

look forward to learning form you.

no takers!?

how about

- sheep sorrel
- milk thistle
- fat hen (AKA lambs quaters)
- chickweed
-navelwort/wall pennywort
-light green spring tips of sitka pine
-three cornered leek
-bear garlic
-young linden tree leaves (there are young leaves almost year-round :) )
are you mad? you cant eat it in a salad, silly! you have to dry it or blend it or just pick off the young tips and roll them in your fingers in order to disperse the stinging stuff... maybe you did that and made a salad out of smushed young tips? let us know how you get on with the salad.... ;)
haha ok sorry, ill have to try your recipe. but im holding you responsible if my tongue gets stung ;p
wood sorrel (looks like shamrocks, tastes like sour :) )
land cress
comfrey (debateable, depending on the variety)
sea beet
miners lettuce
montica siberia
jack in the hedge/garlic mustard
herb robert

apparently also blackberry leaf tips in the spring

(some of these things i listed are more herbs than greens...so to be used in small amounts, but again maybe strict 8:11ers wouldnt use them.. i dunno. i went to a veg permaculture farm last year where they did alot with wild plants and i learned alot of this there...they tended to use small amounts of alot of herb-y things in salads...not things you could make a meal out of in themselves but things they believed had benefits in small amounts, like yarrow, etc.)

seaweeds (though i guess 811ers done use them, although laver seaweed is actually tender and tastes nice off the rocks..)

SEA BEET greens. like spinach but thicker and heartier.

also check out www.pfaf.org

Also clover (flowers and leaves), grasses

I heard basically99% of trees are edible even the inchy type, even the leafs types;)...all grases...see sergei boutenko videos!:)
