Permies,

My entire wild edibles movie called: "Common Weeds And Wild Edibles Of The World" is now on YouTube. I can't remember if I'm repeating myself or not.
Check it out:


If this is old news, I'm sorry. If you're finding out for the first time, you're welcome.

This was good, nice production values, and the video applies so widely as far as regions go.

I like the recommendations for avoiding pesticides and pollution.  I've seen people picking blackberries by railroads so frequently... it's awful.  In Oregon, many roadsides and I believe all the railroads are sprayed with herbicides every year, some a few times per year.

I loved the variety of plants you included.  They would (and did, apparently) make a very nice salad.

Do you think it might be a bit of a generalization to say all grass is edible [possibly implying all grass, in all conditions]?  What about Sudan grass and ones with similar issues, like cyanide compounds?  I suppose most people wouldn't likely end up eating those grasses in a quantity that would be toxic like a ruminant might..but it seems like someone could be tempted to cook up a huge pot of it.  

Great video overall, and thanks for sharing.

Thank you for sharing.  Your production is very informative and knowledgeable.   I liked that you explained about just trying one at a time.

Thank you for such a nice video! We learned a lot, and as soon as we travel out of the 5400' elevation desert we live in, we'll give some of these weeds a try.  ;)
For now, we will stick with prickly pear fruits and yucca, but I am passing the link on to my family that lives in a more "normal" area - they will love making this salad!
