A Wild Winter Herb Salad Gathered On 11th January 2011

My lover has just come back from working a few hours in my friend’s organic market garden. She tells me that they are struggling to find enough stuff to fill their salad bags. After all 2010 has been the coldest winter in a hundred years!

Not so for the hedgerow salad bags I gather, which are over brimming with lovely, scrummy new wild edible plant growth.

Checkout the list of edible wild plants I gathered while taking my trusted hound “Foul Stinking Beast” for a walk.

  1. Cleavers (Galium aparine)
  2. Chickweed (Stellaria media)
  3. Cow Parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris)
  4. White Dead Nettle (Lamium album)
  5. Lesser Celandine (Ranunculus ficaria)
  6. Navelwort (Umbilicus rupestris)
  7. Ground Ivy (Glechoma hederacea)
  8. Nipplewort (Lapsana communis)
  9. Garlic Mustard (Alliaria petiolata)
