Cooking Greens

Perennial Vegetables

Author: Earthchild
The first perennial food sources in the spring are SHOOTS. [See article of Apr 6th]  The next to emerge are the GREENS.  The earliest COOKIN' GREENS are probably watercress and dandelions, with the next being stinging nettles.  I love wild plants!  If I have missed your favorite cooking green, please leave a comment!

Rabbits

Author: Earthchild
I think rabbits are way better than chickens, as long as they do not get loose!

Deer Resistant Flowers

Author: Earthchild
Over the past five years, I have tried to pretty up my husband's rural driveway.  In the beginning, all I did was make a garden for the dear  deer, LOL.  Last year, I discovered that they do not eat blue flowers or colored yarrow.  They will leave most of the plants in this list alone, but be sure to save seeds, and watch in the fall and the spring because the fawns will yank up, taste, and spit out anything that is green, such as Iris.

Edible Shoots

Perennial Vegetables

Author: Earthchild
Food is mostly the same thing, over and over, and you buy it ready to eat, or nearly so.  Very few still raise their own food, and even fewer know that many edible plants are perennial.   I will write on vegetable food plants, hardy in zone 3 or 4, that come up every year or reseed themselves:  Shoots, tubers & bulbs, cooking greens, and salad greens.  [Burpee calls the Spokane area zone 5.]   My sources will include books, magazine articles, and websites.  If you know of other edible perennial plants in each category, please leave a comment!
