Weed not waste not

Weeds get such bad press, though many I'm finding are just plants doing their thing, expanding in any direction habitable, seeking out their own patch of ground where they can make a good life.

And weeds aren't purely florascabs colonising disturbed soils from being eroded either. Many are useful within the food chain and have fantastic health properties for humans. Recently I started harvesting dandelions from the garden for coffee. I used this step by step guide to get me started.

Dandelion roots washed and ready for roasting.
