    This book saved me hundreds of dollars. After realizing how much food I have in my backyard, I stopped at only a six month supply of rice and grains. That acre of stinging nettle, young ferns, cat tails and dandelions means fresh greens 10 months a year...

    Stinging nettle makes a surprisingly good tea.

    Now people are getting smart.
    You can only carry so much on your back.
    The rest is out there ready.
    There is no reason anyone should ever go hungry in this part of the world.
    Nearly every insect is also edible and some don't tase so bad, once they get past the eyes.

    I have a moist area in mostly shade where I started burying the remnants of Safeway green onions a couple years ago. Those things keep growing and now I am getting an infestation of "wild" green onions in my backyard.
