Fantastic thread! Thanks for all the recipes and ideas, I’ll be saving them and trying them out.
I like dandelion buds, picked while they are still closed tightly and sauteed in butter. They taste a lot like mushrooms to me, some agree and other’s don’t on that. If you find them bitter you could probably soak them in a round or two of cold water, throwing the water out and draining them in between?

Check out green dean’s website, eattheweeds. Very good. I get a news letter. He has foraging classes in Florida, heads ups Floridians.
This last newsletter had chickweed. I can now tell I have been calling spurge chickweed. Would have been bad if I ate it.
I do like lambsquarters. Have to try dandelion again. Didn’t like it as a kid.
Cleavers are edible, but I haven’t tried them. I need to, I get a lot in my asparagus bed.
