What are your favorite medicinal weeds and why?
I am still learning that most of the “weeds” growing in my yard are edible and or medicinal! I want to know what if your favorite medicinal plant you like to harvest from your yard and why?
So far my favorite is calendula, which I planted, to make calendula oils and salves with. I have prickly lettuce growing all over, which I plan to make a pain relieving tincture with.
