This practical and attractive guide to identifying and using the many edible varieties of weed will appeal to gardeners, botanists, and horticulturalists, as well as to anyone with an interest in controlling weeds in eco-friendly ways. The main part of the book provides full details of more than 45 species, with advice on how to identify them and use them in the kitchen; it includes recipe suggestions as well as tips for nonculinary uses. It details both the more common weeds, such as nettles, dandelions, chickweed, and ground elder, and the less common, such as brook-lime and pineappleweed. The directory covers both native and nonnative species, including some troublesome invasives. Advice is also given on avoiding plants that are harmful if eaten. With The Weeder's Digest on your bookshelf you can put your weeds to good use; whether for making soup or jam, dyeing fabric or making paper, it's all here.

3.0 out of 5 stars I like weed...ING the garden. Dec 23 2012
By puke skybarfer - Published on
Harland has written an interesting little book. The first section deals with weeds and how to get rid of them if you don't want them, which is useful if you haven't been fighting for years in the trenches in the Battle of The Weeds. In the second section, each weed gets it's own "chapter" and she talks about their history, the edibility, recipes are provided, and whether or not the plant is poisonous-always stressing that one needs to properly recognize and identify plants BEFORE eating otherwise one could die. You can't just trust someone else to be knowledgeable either, for Mother's Day my father and i bought what we were told was a Forget-me-not for my mother...turns out it's a Purple Shamrock or something (we're not huge plant people so how were we to know? We got it because it was pretty). The point is, even the guy at the flower shop didn't know what he was selling and that's his job! So always be sure you 100% know what a plant is before putting it in your mouth. I gave it 3 stars because most of the weeds she mentions are in the UK and only a few places in the U.S. so not really that useful for me, i kinda expected really common weeds but she only mentioned a few like Dandelion, Nettle, and thistle? She mentions one that i've never heard of, no Candian thistle? No Bull thistle? Thistle that are actually common? I shouldn't complain but if you are going to sell a book about weeds in the U.S. maybe one should have weeds that are not just common in the UK...i'll just have to find something more regional for me.

very informative and it was interesting to learn the amount of weeds that can be used for medicinal purposes and the amount that are also edible
