Little Bits of Green

Are you starting to notice weeds showing up in your yard and around the neighborhood? I saw all of these during a stroll around the block yesterday:

  • Chickweed (Stellaria media), with blooms
  • Hairy bittercress (Cardamine hirsuta), with blooms
  • Wild garlic (Allium vineale)
  • Dead nettle (Lamium purpureum)
  • Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale), with blooms
  • Corn speedwell (Veronica arvensis)

These plants have been food and medicine historically, and they’re certainly welcome live greenery this time of year. But whether you use them or just remove them, they’re a good excuse to get outside and spend some time in the garden.
