weedy wednesday – chickweed

Stellaria media – via cladinscarlet.tumblr.com

stellaria should be showing herself in wet shady rich corners of the garden soon. friends of ours had their whole garden taken over, and i just took advantage and collected a bucket full. tincture, vinegar and frozen juice cubes from this harvest, with a pile of seeds in a rich matrix of leftover plant matter, which i’ll find a home for in our garden.

wonderful salad green, brilliant for soothing itchy & rashy skin, healthy, nutritious – another amazing little weed that’s worth knowing.
