The Weeder’s Digest: Identifying and Enjoying Edible Weeds

This book is a practical guide to identifying and using a wide range of edible varieties of weeds, and will appeal to gardeners, botanists, and horticulturalists, as well as to those with an interest in controlling their weeds in eco-friendly ways.

The main part of the book-“The Weeder’s Digest”-includes over forty-five species, with details of how to identify them and suggestions for using them for both cooking and making things. Included are the more common varieties, such as nettles, dandelions, chickweed, and elder, as well as the less common-for example, brookline and hairy bittercress. There is also a section on poisonous plants and those edible plants that should not be eaten to excess.
