Why I Have “Weeds”

“What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered.”  

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

I always have some “weeds” in my yard.  I let them flourish.  One reason is that I saw the birds continually feeding on the seeds.

And then there are bees, butterflies, and me.  Several plants growing here are edible and have a long history of human consumption and yet they are considered “weeds”. I find nothing undesirable about free food and the Finch agrees.
