Weeds may be uninvited guests in our gardens, but many of them are edible — and even delicious! Rather than spending a lot of time and energy getting rid of them (to say nothing of the effects of chemical weedkillers), consider this list of edible weeds from The Vegetable Gardener’s Guide to Permaculture (which can also be downloaded as a PDF for printing).

    I really would advise removing pokeweed from the list. While new shoots can be blanched and cooked, the mature plants and berries are highly poisonous.
