come and get them, we have tons growing now, if you like them or use them or anything, we have way too many to use.
also horsetail, yellow dock, skunk cabbage, dandelions (of course most people have plenty of these) raspberry leaf for tea, blackberry leaf, mustard greens, heal all-- also called self heal, wild mountain lettuce, parsley, and more to come as the weather heats up.
Oh yes, thistle, lots of thistle

what can one do with skunk cabbage??? ETA: don't you have to cook nettles to get the stingers off?
Well if I get an offer for one of the many Boeing jobs I've applied for (mostly in WA), maybe I'll have to take you up on offers like this!
I live in England.
Could you post me some? *smiles sweetly*
will customs allow this stuff into the country? it is organic etc.LOL
Dragggon says he wants OTHER PEOPLE to pick all of this stuff, so HE doesn't have to, we have so much in our gardens, he is trying to free up space for our food.
Don't cook your nettles
No, just put them in the blender with your fruit. The stingers will not sting you AFTER they're blended. BUt you may need to be VERY careful beforehand and either wear gloves, or if you have arthritis, don't worry about it. I slap my wrists with the nettles. The stinging helps my arthritis/tendonitis.

skunk cabbage from google:
WAAAH???? I can't believe it!!! I've lived with this free food only 30' from my door for 31 years and I never knew!!! (Are you pullin' my leg?)
What? No artificial fertilisers, pesticides or growth hormones from multinational conglomerates? Nah, doubt they'll let any of that organic rubbish through customs - it hasn't made any insidious, self-serving companies any money in order to reduce it's suitability for human consumption in some way! ;)
