Eat those weeds
I have discovered a great way to keep the weeds down in the garden..... EAT THEM..... You think I am kidding don't you :-) I am not. Have a look on you tube, weeds are so good for you. I was more than a little worried when I first added a handful of nettles to my smoothie. I dipped my finger in first, then the tongue and only when I was quite sure that they weren't going to set my mouth on fire did I drink it. Next day I added a handful of dandelions to the nettles for my smoothie... I make a base smoothie with fruit and apple juice and add a handful of weeds to the mix before blitzing it in the blender. I discovered last night that you can eat the skin on Kiwi fruit so the whole thing went in this morning along with an unpeeled peach. I shall report back and tell you if I am suddenly super fit.........Oh but a little word of warning. Only pick them from areas that you know have not been sprayed with weed killer or other nasties. Make sure you give them a really good rinse under running water too.
