When I was mowing yesterday, I noticed some lambsquarters. They always remind me of my childhood (until age 10 1/2) on a farm in Minnesota. I took a little ice cream bucket out there today and picked some. Mother would never have thought of cooking them the way I did. I sauted them in some olive oil, then sliced up a poblano sausage and added it to the greens. I let them cook while I boiled some angel hair pasta. When the pasta was ready, I drained it, put the greens and sausage over it and topped that with some shredded Romano cheese. Delicious!

How do you know what is edible or what could kill you ? or at least get you sick ! ... if you didn't put the seed in the ground yourself.

Grampa used to eat flowers on walks in the yard. I know nasturtiums are edible but that's all I remember :)
