Chickweed is a tasty nutritious weed. Many of the weeds in our garden are food that I include them in my meals and let some of them grow as real food in my garden. Those green leafy weeds like pig weed, dandelion leaves, chickweed, nettles, lambs quarters are actually nutritious.
‘Little star in the mist’ is the translation of this weed’s scientific name, Stellaria Media, though “chickweed” is the most common name. It’s no surprise it’s called chickweed since chickens love it so much!
Chickweed is Edible, Free and Tasty Too!
Chickweed is surprisingly delicious in salads, I use my scissors to cut it before I dig it up so that the rest of my vegetables can easily grow.
