This summer I'll be eating the milk thistle that grows in the garden. I've eaten our dandelion leaves before, lots of nettle leaves which taste scrummy, and tasted some berries from a shrub whose name escapes me right now. They're never normally eaten by people these days, but I have a wee book about foraging, and it's mentioned in there. We've had blackberry tea made from leaves from the garden.

You can make your own coffee from cleavers or goosegrass. You have to collect the seeds and roast them I think. I am yet to try that.
