    Many times dandelions sold in stores (and some markets) is really chickory.
    Another thing is when you eat dandelions, pick them when they are younger,
    more tender, and more tasty. That being said, they are still significantly
    stronger than lettuce. I have learned to like more leafy greens as I eat
    more of them, your taste buds may actually change when eating more natural
    foods. Also grow them in rock dust and pick them fresh.

    I am so glad to see that they are growing there. My son used to live near
    the area you showed at first. Wow what a difference.

    Stinging nettles grow wild all around me. Had no idea they were edible. I
    get poked a lot by them when I go hiking and they even invade my front yard
    from time to time. – Heidi

    I made dandelion salad and they were good. Some greens can be more bitter
    and changed the tastes after boiled.

    Another very cool tour John. Had a question about your last video at Leslie
    Doyles. Do you have a master list of the varieties that do well in the hot
    arid regions like vegas that you could mail me? I seen that wall of seeds
    in the video and was hoping you would mention more than just the Armenian
    cukes. Our summers here aren’t quite vegas hot but still very similar.
    Thank you for all you do and keep up the good work.

  • rzashida 2 years ago

    Did you say chowta plant? I want to research that fruit..how are you
    spelling that?

  • Karan Sidhu 2 years ago

    Please do more trees about tropicals, especially tropical fruit trees that
    are growing in SoCal, check tropical fruit forums and go to La hambra they
    have many tropical fruit trees growing there

    Another excellent video, John! Gonna start eating the dandelions in my
    garden…always plenty of those here!

  • hupmi 2 years ago

    Yes, I think you’re right! Rau R?m (Persicaria odorata) is used in
    Vietnamese cuisine as a spicy mint, also for medicinal purposes.

    hahaha!! John eating those nettles made me lol!

  • cantecleer 2 years ago

    Good suggestion. And if he does, I hope he finds an operation that uses
    organic and permaculture techniques (if any even exist). Nearly every grow
    op I’ve seen featured (or can find info about online) is monoculture and
    using a lot of conventional products (i.e., fertilizers, pesticides,
    herbicides, etc.). Would be nice to see if there are growers out there who
    use intercropping/permaculture approaches vs. more conventional practices.
