chickweed in planterLike many of you, I am cultivating my strategies for staying calm and nourished in my body amidst all that is happening in today's landscape. The current stay-at-home status here in the mountains of North Carolina includes the freedom to get outside and move. I'm finding that my favorite days are those a walk, bike ride, or gardening . . . often keeping an eye out for wild foods to harvest along the way!

My beloved wild edible ally, chickweed, loves the cool, wet weather of the spring and the fall. Studying botany in college many years ago, I challenged myself to replace my grocery store veggies with wild greens. Chickweed quickly became a staple!

This spring, I'm enjoying harvesting chickweed for my salads. Want to bring chickweed into your own yard? Here's a 2 minute video we just made with some tips.

I've long taken comfort in knowing that the earth offers food and medicine plants right at our doorstep! May you too be nourished and comforted by the wild plants emerging this spring.
