natural food finds

some months ago i posted about tasting various leaves and berries in my backyard and elsewhere.i discovered that several "weeds" growing in my yard were edible and tasty.

this past weekend while hiking on a hillside trail in ventura i nibbled on a couple of leaves and found a plant that tastes like mustard greens. it has a great tangy flavor and made an incredibly delicious salad. i also discovered a tiny plant that tastes exactly like carrot tops although it wasn't a carrot.

those of you who advised against this type of experimentation don't know what you're missing.
