Weedy Wednesdays with Karlie Eat to Live - Rescued Food Salad

Weedy Wednesdays with Karlie Eat to Live - Wild Mullberries and Cream

Good morning Sydney!! What a glorious way to greet the day with signs of the beginning of my favourite foraging season of the year.

Traditional cultures have been eating wild greens like this for centuries.

Interesting to notice that most probably the plant that bear those connotations does not need to be sown altogether, as is a common cosmopolitan weed of disturbed soils. Chances are the seeds of illicit love affairs thrive in your backyard. Want to know more about it? Read on>>
