Eating in the garden: daisies, dandelions and more
No sooner said than done: I then threw a handful of these herbs into my morning banana smoothie. Actually, dandelion is quite bitter but with all those sweet bananas I could not taste any bitterness.
I've read a lot about how healthy these "weeds" are and I still feel weird picking and trying them. My eldest daugther isn't shy about eating them: this summer she wrapped blackberries with dandelions and tied the whole thing with a daisy. Very innovative, very tasty!
They are just no crops. We are so used to buying groceries at the store that we forget what nature has to offer us unpacked :-).
