Making a soup out of some intentionally planted weedy things and some weeds that just showed up.

Wood sorrel, japanese knotweed, amaranth leaves (pigweed!), creeping charlie.

Plus intentionally planted: dill, carrots and carrot greens, spinach.

The japanese knotweed stems are basically like rhubarb, I've been adding it to compote.

Today is the first time I'll be trying to cook the leaves, which are apparently edible, but since the stems are so rhubarb-like I've had this mental aversion (rhubarb leaves are poisonous)


And I sure hope the knotweed leaves turn out to be a success because I can't get rid of the damn stuff so I might as well eat more of it
