Edible Plants: Clover
I guess I wont get into the whole background of a thought process I have on this topic, but I have decided that I'm going to learn what plants and trees are edible. I think it could be valuable information, and you can find all kinds of info out there in "Internetland" discussing this sort of thing. But I thought I would add a section on this blog about this topic. The point is that if there is an emergency of any kind, you can still find food, should you need to. You just have to know what to look for. I'm learning myself on this topic, and I'm no expert. But, I think as I walk through this learning process, I would post about it. Also, if you try this, this is at your own risk. I suppose different people will have different side affects to this sort of thing.
My first plant that I thought I would learn about eating was clover. Just like what is in your yard. I went out and tried this, and it tasted very much like a green, sour apples. Its safe to eat and it actually tastes pretty good raw. I would recommend washing it off first.
As I'm still learning about this, you may certainly want to research for yourself the nutritional value and side affects of eating these things, like I'm doing. I do think its worth "knowing" this kind of information. Comments are certainly welcome as well.
