Healing Wise ...
with Susun Weed

Weed Walk with Susun


Ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea)


Ground ivy carpets the ground with flowers. We adore the flowering
tops in our salads.




Narrow leaf plantain (Plantago lanceolata)

Plantain holds its flowers atop long stiff stems. The whole affair reminds me of a flying saucer. Anytime is a fine time to harvest leaves for salads (chop finely) or infused oil.



Common speedwell (Veronica officinalis)


This was once a favored remedy for those with respiratory It is edible, but too bitter and too tiny to be worth foraging for salad.




Corn speedwell (Veronica arvensis)


This speedwell is even smaller than her official sister.




Celandine poppy (Cheladonium majus)


She is showing off her stunning, abundant yellow flowers. Not to be confused with mustard family plants, though they do have four petals. The yellow sap of this poisonous plant can be used against skin cancer.






Yellow rocket or Barbara's cress (Barbarea vulgaris)


Our winter friend, now brings the sunlight to earth as she spreads her yellow cheer. The leaves are now too bitter for my taste, but I do like the flowers and flower buds in my salads. Note the four-petaled mustard family flowers. Both the "H" and the "X" pattern of the four petals are visible in this close-up photo.
