This was good, nice production values, and the video applies so widely as far as regions go.
I like the recommendations for avoiding pesticides and pollution. I've seen people picking blackberries by railroads so frequently... it's awful. In Oregon, many roadsides and I believe all the railroads are sprayed with herbicides every year, some a few times per year.
I loved the variety of plants you included. They would (and did, apparently) make a very nice salad.
Do you think it might be a bit of a generalization to say all grass is edible [possibly implying all grass, in all conditions]? What about Sudan grass and ones with similar issues, like cyanide compounds? I suppose most people wouldn't likely end up eating those grasses in a quantity that would be toxic like a ruminant might..but it seems like someone could be tempted to cook up a huge pot of it.
Great video overall, and thanks for sharing.

Thank you for such a nice video! We learned a lot, and as soon as we travel out of the 5400' elevation desert we live in, we'll give some of these weeds a try. ;)
For now, we will stick with prickly pear fruits and yucca, but I am passing the link on to my family that lives in a more "normal" area - they will love making this salad!
Sometimes a map of all the trails that don’t lead to your destination is as useful as finding the one that does.
Yup, yup, yup. Tiny ad:
