3. Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)

It does amaze me that some people have a ton of these right in their yard but they buy salad in a bag at a market with this very leaf in it...

fappomatic: The article is incorrect. Kudzu can grow as much as 8 feet a day in the peak of the growing season. We can thank President Roosevelt for its infestation of every national park in the Southeast.

That said, milkweed is the poor man's asparagus. Harvest before the seed pods open and boil. Yum!

The interwebs tells me milkweed is poisonous to humans. Does boiling neutralize the bad stuff?

Are they kidding me? Kudzu tastes like shiat. Cows won't eat it and if they do decide to give it a try, it ruins their milk. So far, beyond the erosion control for which it was introduced, only use for the plant has been found: as a source for bio-fuel.
