Edible and useful plants

Many people in the developed world today know little of the useful plants that surround them and feel no connection to them. Plants that were once an integral part of our lives are now pretty much invisible, or are even thought of as a nuisance for invading our garden space. This is unfortunate because we are just as dependent upon plants for our survival as we ever were. The only difference is that the plants are grown for us, where we can‟t see them, often hundreds, or even thousands, of miles away.

This section for is every edible plant that isn’t normally found in the vegetable garden. These can be grown in a variety of ways and can all add to your diet and your life.
