#chickpeaflour omelette with all the veggies... #csabox #peppers, #onion, #eggplant (frozen earlier), #thyme, #tomatoes plus #foraged #lambsquarters (frozen). Half a cup of #chickpea flour has 14 g of #protein. Mix half and half chickpea flour with water, add some #nooch, and let it stand while you prep the veggies. I covered the pan while it cooked on medium heat until it was just barely dry on top, then added the veggies and folded.

Humulus lupulus (common hop or hops) is one of my favorite plants! Used commonly in brewing types craft beer🍺 hops is in the same family as Cannabis! You can see it's similar leaf shape, and flowers. If you break up the flowers and smell it, you will smell quite a familiar Cannabis smell •

A small bundle of dried Lamb’s Quarters (Aztec Spinach) Seeds, from what little bit is left of this season’s garden. 🌿 Lamb’s Quarters are very useful, in that, both the seeds and leaves can be eaten. This variety, being native to The America’s, was used frequently by Indigenous American Indians when found. Some tribes began cultivating it, and there are accounts of some tribes using the seeds in place of corn to make tortillas. That would take a lot of seeds.... The leaves have a salty, “soapy” taste 🌎 #indigenous #lambsquarters

The Lambsquarter in the evening light is so beautiful as it drips with seed. I quietly slip out to the garden as the sun is setting, and harvest in meditative solitude. In 30 minutes, a gallon of rough seed is easily gathered. I don’t mind the work of drying and processing that lies ahead.
.
I contemplate my ancestors, Cornish and Norse, and how this wild plant was survival food during difficult times, probably for generations. Without this plant’s ancestors feeding mine, it’s possible I would not have been birthed into existence, for there are stories of our grandmothers sending the children - my parents - out to gather Lambsquarter leaves for boiled greens when there was not much else to put on the table.
.
It’s humbling to think about.
.
I turn and, with arms outstretched, give thanks to Lambsquarter. Generous. Abundant. Wild and Free. 🌿💚🌿

Raining today, so here’s a throwback to Saturday’s day of yard work.This lambsquarter plant embodies the colors of fall, though I didn’t know it had magenta in its bag of talents! #nofilter #lambsquarters #autumnleaves #fallcolors

Harvesting & drying lamb’s quarters seeds and cedar berries this weekend. I feel like a squirrel stocking this stuff away for the winter. The berries will season meats and stews, but I’d love to try the seeds in a rustic loaf; they are firm and crunchy with a toasty, grassy scent. Anyone in my area feel like collaborating on some bread making? Let me know...

One of the challenges I’ve had is knowing how to use the wild food abundance that grows with me. Tea is great, and I use a lot of herbal goodness that way, but it’s been important to learn how to include the harvest in my meals. I’m hoping my sharing will bring inspiration and ideas to you.

This morning I made oatmeal, and turned it into an Autumn Harvest breakfast, a simple bowl rich with flowers: local bee pollen, local honey I infused earlier this month with Goldenrod blossoms and Monarda petals, and a spoonful of dried Lambsquarter flowers which - in a fun surprise- opened up into those tiny stars after exposure to the warmth of the cooked oatmeal.
.
This is such simple yet beautiful food, flavorful and rich with immune-boosting nutrients that came from the Earth around me. It feels like a special gift to myself when I eat this way. 💕💚💕💚

Breathtaking genetic diversity: the first photo shows lambsquarters that has a mutation that led to this stunning magenta color instead of the typical green-white seen in the second photo. Purple means anthocyanin which is a welcome nutritional component in selective breeding. Other great traits: attractive leaves with purple edges, narrow and compact growth habit, thrives at intensive spacing...not to mention that this would sparkle in a floral arrangement! Can't wait to save these seeds!
