    Dandelion, Wild (Taraxacum officinale) seeds, organic:

    The everlasting foe of the uninformed, dandelion is a superstar of the forest garden. With a super strong life-force, mineral-accumulating capabilities, and loaded with nutrition, this leafy green is a sure winner in our garden. The flowers are great for feeding bees, making wine, or adding to salads. The roots are superb for teas and juicing. Remember - this is a wild green with all the strength and resilience lacking with domesticated plants, expect it to thrive. The ultimate all-purpose plant. We truly value this misunderstood gem and enjoy every bit of it.

    Family: Aster (Asteraceae) 
Herbaceous perennial.

    Native to and distributed throughout the temperate zones of planet Earth. This is a wild plant that prospers if you do not dig out the roots (even when we harvest the herb for spring greens or tincture) and no need to weed them out.



    Lamb's Quarters (Chenopodium album) seeds, organic

    Tiny seeds are pressed into the soil surface. Tamp securely and keep evenly moist, warm and in the light until germination. Plant prefers part shade to full sun and richly composted soil, and much water.

    The wild ancestor of spinach, Lambs Quarters can compete in the garden without much help. With the strength and resilience found lacking in spinach, this leafy green will give loads more minerals and antioxidants than any salad found at the supermarket. Growing it at home provides you with unparalleled leafy greens and the freshest product possible. Reseeds easily - you will find it growing around years after planting.

    (White Goosefoot)

    Family: Goosefoot (Chenopodiaceae)

    Annual. Wild medicinal food. Soft, slightly downy, and mucilaginous leaves, like spinachhigh in protein, calcium, and vitamin A. Dried herb good in soups. Seeds also edible and nutritious. Good bird feed. Native Americans used the plant to treat urinary infection, diarrhea, and stomachache.

    Plant prefers full sun or partial shade and very moist soil. Good drainage not necessary. Tiny seeds are pressed into the soil surface. Tamp securely and keep evenly moist, warm and in the light for germination. Sow the seed in the spring--it germinates easily in 8 to 14 days. Plant 2 feet apart. Grows up to 9 feet tall.



    Wild Mountain Spinach - Ruby Orach (Atriplex hortensis)

    A warm variety of spinach, it does well intermixed in the summer garden or year round in warmer climates. An heirloom variety - cultivated since the 1800s, this spinach will outperform when standard spinach will wither away. Provides a wonderful magenta color similar to Lamb's Quarters.

    In coastal regions, it will perform despite salt and wind effect. The magenta leaves will turn green when cooked, but are colorful additions to salad or micro-green mixes. Sow the seeds just beneath the surface, tamp in, and keep in strong light.
