I’ve recently learned that some weeds are edible, medicinal even. Dandelion is beneficial from the flower to the root. Purslane grows in abundance, and has the most Omega 3 fatty acids of all leafy greens. Lambsquarters, a type of wild spinach, is an excellent source of B vitamins.
Nothing is truly owned. We came, we saw. We conquer, we neglect. We obsess over possession as if it’s a basic need. We mow and bathe our lawn in chemicals for an imaginary pat on the ass from our neighbors, then spend the day staring at our useless grass patch feeling like patriots.
