9a – Shotweed

9a - Shotweed

One of our class attendees asked Melany a great question: if she were trapped on desert island and could only have 1 wild edible, what would it be? “Shotweed,” Melany answered without hesitation. This frequent uninvited garden guest is peppery and lively. Season is over for now, mostly, but its early annual appearance (when other jazzily flavored edibles are still hibernating) is another reason to learn to love this common weed.
