Weeds are the first responders! They repair damaged soil. Weeds have deep roots that bring nutrients up from the core of the earth and feed the topsoil. Weeds typically have deeper roots then our “food” does. There are some weeds you want and some you may not want, so knowing your weeds and what they do is a good thing.
Thistles and Amaranth are two vital weeds that you want, but most people try to kill them. Amaranth is a super food and so are thistles, goats love them and so does your soil. There are other weeds you want; like dandelions, chickweed and many more… Learn your weeds and how they can serve you.
