Thumbs up "Eat The Weeds" a great YouTube series



Advertise Here

There is a YouTube video maker who has done a series on wild edible foods. His videos show the plants in detail. He tells you what to look out for as far as dangerous look alikes and what parts of the plants can be used when. He shows how to prepare and eat each one. He has a follow up to each video on his web site where you can look at the photographs of the plants in detail and learn even more about each one.

I think you will really enjoy this series and it can help you find a large assortment of great new free foods growing right around you.

What a sweet thing to say.

It is nice to be missed. My son's GF is moving in and we are shuffling stuff all around. Boy do I have to down size, especially my clothing.

She is such a sweet thing. I am all excited.

I hope you all like the Eat the Weeds series. If you have not seen it and don't already know about it, I think it is quite a find.

I have looked for this kind of information for so long! He really shows you what the plant looks like as it grows and in its different stages of growth. Then, he tells you what he is looking at, tells you how it feels or smells and points out any distinctive features. That is so much better than the google images. He is doing an outstanding service which can put real food on people's tables. Everyone can afford free~!

Yeah. I have made pretty good progress in the series but I am determined to watch every single episode. So, it is keeping me busy, too.

The problem I have is, at the beginnng of every vid, he says to consult a local expert before eating anything. Well, if I do that, there's no sense in watching the vids. At the local extention office, I can find out what grows locally and is edible.

there are very few plants that are poisonous.
in all of alberta there are a handful of things one must not eat.
it would be smart for the dude to make a vid about what few things not to eat.
certainly, some things are not tasty, but very few will harm you.

I say that to cover my legal butt. It takes the legal responsibility off me and puts it on the viewer, where it should be.

Looks like a pretty good series. There are a couple dozen that I can apply locally to specific plants, so I'm looking forward to checking them out.

I'm the dude who makes the videos, and runs the website. There are some 25,000 species in North America, at least 3,000 are edible. It's a lot easier to do videos on those that are edible than those that aren't. Also what "poisonous" means makes it difficult as well. Are acorns poisonous? Unprepared yes. Will they kill you? Probably not but they can diabilitate you and perhaps give you long term kidney issues.

Most of the plants that aren't "deadly" will still make you sick, if only to lose fluids from both ends. That' ain't fun either. Or they can put a hole in your sotmach for six weeks making you wish for death. As for the really deadly ones, there are few dozen, I have at least six locally including the most toxic and second most toxic seed on earth.

But the real reason why I haven't done a specific video on toxic plants (I have mentioned a couple) is my videos are about edible plants and if I do one on toxic plants some idiot will get it wrong and I will get sued by his survivors.

I met green deans wife while hiking on top of Roan Mountain on the AT. Very nice lady. It was just a chance encounter. I had watched many of Green Deans Youtube Videos. I just happened to start talking to these ladies and one was his wife.

Just commenting on what a small world it really is.
