I've never tried pigweed, but I heard that the young leaves and growing tips on older plants are the tastiest and most tender. The seeds are supposed to be nutritious. I think it is similar to spinach. I have not verified if this is true.How do u eat pigweed? Tastes like?
I planted my vegetable garden Friday. Sweet corn, sugar peas, bush beans, zucchini and butternut squash.
The plot next to the vegetable is planted with watermelon and mammoth sunflowers at the periphery. I potted tomatoes and 3 kinds of peppers. The basil and lavender beds are seeded (starting fresh with lav), and thyme, rosemary have been transplanted, doing well.
I chipped up some trees HD cut last fall and mulched my edges and rows. tossed rest into chicken run for compost.
Set hoops and netting for deer/rabbit deterrent. ready to relax!
