Have a bunch of henbit on my property and have discovered from someone here (thank you!) that it's an edible weed that has nutritional qualities. May try it in green smoothies. Wondering if it has any beneficial qualities to add to the soil like cover crops do. If I mix into compost or as mulch, am thinking that it may just disburse the seeds more. One site here mentioned that "Henbit, dead nettle, dandelion, and clover indicate fertile soil." That's good news to me!
i have lists of several hundred things growing in our yard or woods that we can eat..a great book is Eat For Free
Bloom where you are planted.

Thanks. Who/where is that book available? Don't see it on Amazon. Have henbit all over my yard. Have been making green smoothies with it mixed with whey protein and fruit . Quite good. May use the rest as mulch after chopping.
