A bit of reality after all those fab harvest pictures 😉 We thought we'd share some about one of our weeds! We want to learn more about the weeds that grow in our garden, as they can tell you a lot about your soil. We thought we'd share our newly-found knowledge with you guys 👍🏼 This weed is called Gallant Soldier, or Knopkruid in Dutch 🇳🇱 It comes in two varieties: hairy and bald 🙃 we have the hairy ones. They are edible: you can use it in a pesto for example (or at least, that's what The Internet told us - haven't tried it yet 😬). They grow well on a sandy soil. Our garden is located just a couple of kilometers from the sea, and let's not forget that we live in The Netherlands 🌊, so our soil is quite sandy. We suppose that's one of the reasons why this weed is growing so well on our plot. Furthermore: it loves a moist soil, so expect them to come up in great numbers after a wet period 🌧. Finally, it is a sign of high fertility of your soil - guess we'll take that as a compliment! Do you know more about the Gallant Soldier? Please let us know!
