Well what da ya know? I’ve got more edibles in my front lawn. I’d call it grass, but since less than a quarter of the greenery is actually a grass, I’ll just call it lawn. Sounds more formal too.
Anyways, before we mow the lawn for the first time this year, I wanted to try and identify all of the non-grass species growing rampant in the front yard. One weed I noticed a few days ago is called Henbit. Lo and behold, it’s actually edible! Yesterday I picked & washed a handful of it, chopped it up and tossed it into my scrambled eggs. And I didn’t die. So I figured I’d let the rest of the family in on the green bounty growing outside our doorstep and made everyone egg burritos with wild onion and henbit for breakfast this morning.
The general consensus is that it tastes pretty bland. I thought it tastes kind of like parsley, with maybe a slight hint of pepper. At least it looked good in the eggs.
