      Lamb's Quarters... another weedy wonder... sauteed with oil/garlic/onion and herbs it's almost like spinach. Check your garden; you might find some.

      Lambs quarter can frequently be found growing in vegetable gardens, on disturbed soil, and along the fringes of fields and banks. The plants can grow to about four feet in height with multiple branches forming off of a main squarish looking central stem. Lambs quarter leaves often have a white, pollen-like substance coating their undersides.

      Lambs quarters - It's also called pigweed, goosefoot, and wild spinach. It's mostly known as a weed, but is grown as a vegetable in other areas. We had some growing in one of our garden beds this year. It's vaguely spinach tasting, and we've been using it in salads all summer. Nothing better than free greens.

      Lamb's quarter (Chenopodium album) is an edible weed. The leaves and stems are edible and absolutely delicious, with a flavor that can be compared to spinach or chard.

      Lamb's-quarter (Chenopodium album) is another weed that grows in all 50 states. Lamb's-quarter comes up much earlier than purslane, but not as early as many of the edible wild cresses. Harvest only the young shoots shortly after they have unfolded, and discard the older leaves and tough stems. I have seen lots of recipes for lamb's-quarter, but some may prefer the boiled leaves spiced up with bacon drippings or bacon crumbs. (Use organic pork, of course!) Add washed leaves to garden salads and throw a few leaves of lamb's-quarter (or any edible weed) into soups. You can substitute tender shoots of edible weeds in any recipe that calls for spinach or chard. And there's always a nice succession of wild plants to do this with. In the Northeast, lamb's-quarter follows the early spring cresses and is in turn shortly followed by pigweed, with purslane flourishing last (around June) in the heat of summer.
