Weeds also compete with cultivated crops and forages for moisture, light, and nutrients, but many weeds are nutrient-rich and digestible.9 The objective of this review paper is to recognize the nutritional values of weeds commonly found in pastures.2. They eat it and seem to digest it very well. My basset hound loved chewing on the roots of ragweed and burdock. We live in Fort Lauderdale. Now I think I will leave some to harvest for medicine and other uses as I find them. 1: Nodding thistle (. Effects of annual weed control on alfalfa forage quality. Finding reliable information on topics that affect our lives is an important life skill for those of us living in the ‘misInformation Age’. Since the ragweed was too young to see the lack of purple conium blotches on the stem, I didn’t want to take any chances and tossed all the ragweed leaves. I feel it s impossible to eat it raw in salads. Ragweed oil might have been too valuable to eat but worth the effort to obtain medicinally. It is also a favorite food (seeds) of many birds including quail. I was looking for information on how to harvest the seeds. They would dismiss Giant Ragweed grains as too small or not worth the effort to make a stable crop, and that may be true. Biological control of Canada thistle in temperate pastures using high density rotational cattle grazing. In a study by Marten et al.,13 Jerusalem artichoke, Canada thistle, and perennial sowthistle consistently had greater IVDMD than alfalfa across sampling dates (table 1). Hope this helps. Good stuff. With apologies, I have no idea. Ambrosia trifida grows all over the place around here: Dallas, Texas. Giant Ragweed is much larger in stature to Common Ragweed, often gro… Oil would have been extremely important to native populations and could be again if we were ever forced to provide our own food. Use of goats as biological agents for the renovation of pastures in the Appalachian region of the United States. Nutrition Facts Cantaloupe ... immune system recognizes a similarity between the allergy-causing proteins in ragweed pollen and the proteins in the food. ragweed, tall ragweed, palmate ragweed. 1987. My dogs love to eat the leaves off the stems. Interesting thought. Forage nutritive value and palatability of perennial weeds. Zinc (Zn) is enriched in all weeds (Table 2). What about humans eating the hard seeds or foliage? One debate in the ethnobotanical community is whether the natives cultivated a huge version of Giant Ragweed or not. A quick search confirms the two to be close botanical relatives. I know if you boil it twice you can eat it without any acute effects because I know someone who’s done that. We noticed an area where deer were hammering the giant ragweed. Ambrosia ambrosioides; a tea was made from the roots and given to women after birth. © 2020 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. These weeds with Ca:P ratios exceeding 7:1 would be a problem only if they were the lone feed source for the animal, which would rarely occur in normal pasture or hay production. A late summer bloom of cascades of yellow flowers might be (or look like, to a beekeeper) a big draw as the hot summer dearth ended and some of the early fall flowers (goldenrod is a big one here in Atlanta) started to come online. Small flowers yellowish green, no petals or sepals, drooping clusters. study13 that had Ca:P ratios that might cause problems. Has anyone heard of this happening? TIME OF YEAR: Flowers late summer or early fall, seeds follow, large, tough-coated, viable for many years. Another test showed that weedy hay containing 20 percent yellow rocket had lower crude protein, digestibility, and intake as compared to hay with no yellow rocket.6 The goats actually picked out the alfalfa and grass in the hay and left the yellow rocket behind. Therefore, combining cattle, sheep, and goats in a pasture can lead to increased utilization and profitability.4 Several factors affect the palatability of a plant, including texture, leafiness, fertilization, moisture content, pests, and compounds in the plant.1 Many studies do not include palatability trials to observe if the plants will actually be consumed. allergies to members of the Aster/Composite family are not uncommon. I realized that in late spring/early summer, the tougher outer layer of the stem can be peeled back to reveal a tender, juicy, and palatable vegetable with an interesting flavor. Why it is missing from Arizona now is anyone’s guess. But I do know the seed oil is edible if one is not allergic to the plant. For years, Ozark herbalists have treated diarrhea with tea prepared from the leaves. These foods have proteins that are similar to those present in ragweed, and therefore, they are particularly likely to cause oral allergy syndrome (OAS) in individuals allergic to ragweed pollen (a phenomenon known as ragweed-food cross-reactivity). Allergy to ragweed and related plants: Tagetes may cause an allergic reaction in people who are sensitive to the Asteraceae/Compositae family. I forced ragweed tea down her throat with a turkey baster and she was well in three days. Sheep and horses also like to eat the plant. bushes were drastically defoliated over the four grazing seasons, leaving few plants remaining in the pastures. It’s average invitro digestible dry matter is 73%, it’s acid detergent fiber is 25%, and it’s crude protein is 25%. Among them could be smilax root starch and pokeweed greens. For the past couple of years, ragweed growth has exploded in pastures. I doubt it but it is nearly everywhere. Virginia Cooperative Extension programs and employment are open to all, regardless of age, color, disability, gender, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, veteran status, or any other basis protected by law. I noticed the pollen still made the allergies worse so I stuck to the leaves. The lead remediation sounds wonderful as well. De Bruijn and Bork5 researched Canada thistle management in temperate pastures using three different cattle-grazing systems, including season-long, low-intensity/high-frequency rotational grazing, and high-intensity/low-frequency rotational grazing. 1979. I suffer from sever ragweed allergies which have worsened over the years. The plant is also very high in manganese, calcium, and is high in Magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc and copper. Our rabbits and dairy goats love the giant ragweed stems and leaves. Food. I am wondering if they could be added to baked goods like chia is. So, for what it is worth, the seed pods can be eaten and are not only tasty, but nutritious. Like Pokeweed he is boiling it twice in this case to moderate the flavor. I took half a day last week searching weed guides and catalogs, it was not easy to find. I heard that the leaves and blossoms of the plant can be made into a tea and lessen allergies. Also I am running out of medications that are working for me. I’d say give it a try. I just came across this from a comment on another site: “Apparently, the answer to the mystery is simple: Linneaus, knowing that ragweed was so bitter it could render the milk of cows who grazed it unpotable, decided to make a joke. I look forward to this plant here in north central texas, because in July and August it is hard to find happy plants growing with abandon if the heat has set in properly. I have eaten the flower spikes off and on for over 30 years. Perhaps ground seeds boiled in water, oil skimmed off the top. study3 had adequate CP for all types of beef cattle (10.5 percent CP),7 whereas the concentration of crabgrass (Digitaria) CP (table 4) is sufficient to meet the requirements of dairy heifers, young goats, does, bucks, mature ewes, and finishing and replacement lambs.16 The summer annual/perennial species coffee senna (Cassia occidentalis), prickly sida (Sida spinosa), crowfootgrass (Dactyloctenium aegyptium), Texas panicum (Panicum texanum), yellow foxtail, bermudagrass (Cynodon spp. Interestingly, my dogs love giant ragweed. Now she is a happy grandmother. I work on a split-operation half-organic farm in Manatee County Florida. Holst, P. J., C. J. Allan, M. H. Campbell, and A. R. Gilmour. There is also at least one Ragweed with a root the natives ate, Ambrosia tenuifolia, Slimleaf Burr Ragweed. Winter/summer annual/biennial/perennial weeds are an inevitable component of pastures and hay fields. Thank you for this post. Why do they call it RAG-weed? Marten and Andersen’s results12 showed that common ragweed had a greater ADF concentration than alfalfa, but a similar IVDMD (table 2); they rationalized that the fiber in ragweed and other herbaceous weeds must be less lignified and more digestible than alfalfa fiber. They send out runner shoots in early spring. It has also reputedly been used to break down and flush out kidney and bladder stones. All of the ragweed species in N America are very effective treatment/preventive for hay fever symptoms, IF harvested and chewed or tinctured BEFORE the plants bloom. Now I know what to search for. Perhaps it’s time to reconsider Ragweed. Weber says a key sign is the timing and severity of symptoms compared with local pollen counts. ), and pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) (table 4) have inadequate CP levels for low-producing, lactating dairy cows (19 percent CP).16 All the summer annual/perennial weeds and forages at the vegetative stage in the Bosworth et al. Agronomy Journal 72:1050-1054; Adapted from Marten, G. C., C. C. Sheaffer, and D. L. Wyse. I also believe that these pods are related to and have much the same appearance of what was purportedly the primary food-source of the Incas, and is still an important quasi-grain eaten in that area. The grain is some 47% crude protein and 38% crude fat. Common Ragweed, Ambrosia artemisiifolia. When grazing pastures containing weeds, management is very important to achieve successful weed utilization and suppression. IDENTIFICATION: Annual 3 to 12 feet tall, branching occasionally. There is a large patch of it growing on an empty lot on our street and whenever we walk past it the dogs yank us over to it so they can graze on it. Weed Science 34:150-154. Protein decreases with maturity, so some summer annual or perennial weed and forage species, especially grasses, would not satisfy the CP needs of high-producing beef cattle, all dairy cattle, sheep, and goats at the flower/boot and fruit/head stages. The grain is some 47% crude protein and 38% crude fat. BUT, ragweed is not a plant in the grass family; ragweed seeds are not cereal grains; and ragweed seeds do not contain gluten. Herb juice for pleurisy. Redroot pigweed, common lambsquarters, and Pennsylvania smartweed had less ADF than alfalfa when studied by Marten and Anderson12 (table 2). i found that out accidentally as well when trying to weed a garden bed. I don’t know if we are communicating about the same species. The next question is was it raised to eat the grain or for the oil, or both? Journal of Northeast Forestry University 2008-01GC-MS Analysis of Fatty Acid Constituents in Ambrosia trifida Seed Oil, Zhang Lin,Yang Lei,Niu Huiying,Li Xiaowei,Zu Yuangang(Key Laboratory of Forest Plant Ecology of Ministry of Education,Northeast Forestry University,Harbin 150040,P.R China). I am now 65 and have tried many things over the years to find relief, even Homeopathy which worked best of any without the bad side affects that come with many drugs which was marginally helpful, BUT, in 2003 while working in Louisiana on a track salvage job in October that year we were working a section of old rail that had Massive amounts of Giant Ragweed (10 feet or More) Biggest I had EVER seen growing all around us ! The herb is valued in treating various urinary tract disorders and used both for such serious ailments as nephritis or for such common complaints as cystitis. We sprinkle pine nuts on pesto. Sheep graze broadleaf plants before grasses and shrubs, while goats will eat the shrubs not grazed by sheep or cattle. I am eager to give it a try as I love vegies. It turns a reddish purple color, I suspect it may contain anthocyanins. To boiled leaf tea they added salt to to increase the appetite then drank the tea for nine mornings. and as the month wore on so my hay fever. Marten and Anderson12 revealed that the grassy weeds yellow foxtail, green foxtail (Setaria viridis), giant foxtail (Setaria faberi), and barnyardgrass, along with oats, had greater cell-wall constituents than herbaceous weeds. If you live in the U.S., you’re probably starting to feel the effects of ragweed pollen. About 150 years ago — five generations — American farmers were raising crabgrass for grain when they, too, moved on to corn, the descendant of maize. Common ragweed has both male and female flowers. I decided to try something that is a principal of Homeopathy (Likes cure Likes) and not real sure what I might be getting myself into Ate the ragweed flowers ……and waited…. Quinoa. Hall, J. Edwin J. Jones, Director, Virginia Cooperative Extension, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA, United States; M. Ray McKinnie, Administrator, 1890 Extension Program, Virginia State University, Petersburg, VA, United States. Adapted from Temme, D. G., R. G. Harvey, R. S. Fawcett, and A. W. Young. This is so interesting, I am really happy I found this article –can you tell Lol , Thank you for mentioning bur ragweed…here in NV, it’s everywhere… And the burs are really nasty… I got sick, Really Sick !! 1975. Nuts and seeds chart: nutrition chart with pictures provides an easy cross-reference for vitamin and mineral content in fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. I have seen ragweeds thrive on rich soils that were unlikely to have had high levels of lead, but I do not have anyalysis on those soils proving this. Who needs dog food? I am not an herbalist and most certainly have no medical credentials at all. peace & blessing. Classification and Description: Giant ragweed is an erect summer annual that is native to the U.S. and it can be commonly found throughout many parts of the country. Weeds can often make up a large percentage of a hay crop, especially in early spring when winter annual weeds are thriving.2 At the first hay cutting, many winter annual weeds such as curly dock, Virginia pepperweed (Lepidium virginicum), and cutleaf evening primrose may be mature, which may cause hay quality to decline.2 Bosworth et al.3 indicated that if some of the higher quality but less palatable summer annual weeds – sicklepod, coffee senna, hemp sesbania, prickly sida, and jimsonweed (Datura stramonium) – were included in hay, they could still provide a nutritious food source. 2. For example, calcium (Ca) in ragweed and Jerusalem artichoke is ~50% higher than that in alfalfa–rich hay (Table 1). ! (2006). Marten and Anderson12 reported a Ca:P ratio of 7:1 for velvetleaf and a 7.7:1 ratio for giant ragweed (Ambrosia trifida). Seed oil extracted from the seeds of Ambrosia trifida through solvent extraction was analysed by GC-MS after esterification. 1987. I suppose I’ve already been eating this plant processed via the goat milk! The grass species tall fescue (F. arundinacea) and Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis) in the pastures were increased from 16 percent to 63 percent in pastures grazed by goats, and from 13 percent to 54 percent in cattle and goat pastures.11 Multiflora rose (R. multiflora Thunb.) Maybe a bright young student would be interested in including your ragweed in their studies, as bio-remediation of toxins in soils and water is very much in vogue in the academic world. It was also a “granny” medicine to “clean everything out” after childbirth. Would appreciate any leads. The goats are fine I cant say the same for the ragweed crop in the yard. Perhaps it’s time to reconsider Ragweed. They also ate the stalks as greens. The leaves—picked BEFORE any blooms appear can be chewed and the juice swallowed, relieving sinus and nasal congestion almost instantaneously, IF there is no tincture on hand, for instance when you’re out hiking, etc. nutrition, medicinal values, recipes, history, harvesting tips, etc.) 79:980-986. My symptoms all but cleared up within about 20 minutes ! The same as is now gaining wide acceptance the world over. I was worried when my goats mowed it down with their jaws. But, such grains were another flavor and texture to add to the limited, slow-to-change diet. Adapted from Marten, G. C., C. C. Sheaffer, and D. L. Wyse. Issued in furtherance of Cooperative Extension work, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Virginia State University, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture cooperating. It makes rag-fiber? Tidewater Agricultural Research and Extension Center, College of Natural Resources and Environment, Virginia/Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. Effects of annual weed control on alfalfa forage quality. Medicinal needs could justify calorie-deficit tasks. Green stems covered with white hairs, leaves opposite to a foot long and eight inches wide, larger leaves divided into 3 or 5 lobes, usually serrated along the edge, long petioles sometimes winged. how many seeds would yield enough oil for say a cup to pint ect? Common ragweed is a native annual plant found throughout North America on roadsides, fields, cultivated ground and other disturbed sites. Perhaps the seeds were parched then eaten. Aside from avoiding the trigger foods listed above that could make your ragweed allergy symptoms worst (sunflower seeds, chamomile tea, melons, cucumbers, zucchini), opt for a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods, like fresh, organic veggies and high-quality proteins, like wild-caught salmon and grass-fed beef. Those sensitive to gluten would be well advised to learn the natural sources of gluten and also possible gluten contamination of other foodstuffs and/or processed foods to which gluten has been added. For example, some suggest the natives crush the seeds and boiled them for oil (not unlike acorns.) This literature review showed that herbaceous weeds and a few grassy weeds, such as barnyardgrass, can have invitro dry matter digestibility that is greater than or equal to high-quality species like alfalfa. Do you mean the common ragweed that grows tall but has frilly like leaves? Ragweed has multiple antigens but the strongest is Antigen E. There are also several plants that in the greater Ragweed family that can cause allergic reactions including sage brush, marsh elders, poverty weed, cocklebur, desert broom, groundsel bush, feverfew and dog fennel. Getting the starch out of a smilax root is a Herculean task that burns far more calories than is produced on consumption. The leaves are large enough to use like grape leaves as wraps for steamed rice and vegetables. In the late summer, about 23 million Americans have symptoms from an allergy to ragweed pollen. But we know animals certainly ate them and still do. Ragweed earns its name because the leaf appears so raggedy-looking. Apparently it is. Another interesting question is: how available is the lead accumulated in the ragweed to humans or animals consuming various portions of the plant? study13 (table 5). Amazing article. Fast forward to September 2016 North West Arkansas and could tell I might be in for a rough season so I decided to go all out and give it a Real roll and went to the country and gathered a quart size zip bag (I keep in the freezer) full of flower tassel’s and have been eating 3 to 4 full tassel’s a day for over a week now. A study conducted in Waynesville, N.C. – located in the Appalachian region of the United States – tested the effectiveness of cattle grazing alone, and with goats, on hill-land pasture dominated by herbaceous weeds and brush.11 The experiment utilized 30 mature does per 2.5 acres, or cattle with goats (17 does and two to three steers per 2.5 acres, each steer weighing approximately 500 pounds). Herb of second growth crushed leaves mixed with chicken fat and/or hot water, cool mixture rubbed on the body to reduce fever. The leaves are up to 6" long and 4" across, and are opposite or alternate along the stems. i noticed that deer really like giant ragweed, but won’t touch common(minus a small nibble, maybe some medicinal benefits) they they literally took every leaf off of the big healthy plants. They aren’t colorful enugh to attract insects for pollination.). Thanks all. Best of luck. I just used one sprig of blossoms in a test-tea (since even a novice like me can tell ragweed blossoms from conium blossoms) I had a few test-sips, and then went back to work. Most winter/summer annual/perennial weeds and forages satisfy the CP needs of beef cattle. Ambrosia psilostachya, a bitter decoction taken to relieve fever. Redroot pigweed (Amaranthus retroflexus) and common ragweed (Ambrosia artemisiifolia) had greater IVDMD than alfalfa, while common lambsquarters (Chenopodium album), yellow foxtail (Setaria glauca), and barnyardgrass (Echinochloa crus-galli) had similar IVDMD to alfalfa12 (table 2). I don’t think of Ragweed as having seed pods. Article could summarize how to use ragweed – in this era of Montanto messing with our corn, we may need it in future? If you ate it before, please let me know. Giant ragweed is a member of the Asteraceae, or sunflower, fam-ily of plants. Through the spring I didn’t even know what the plant was. Common Ragweed is the most prolific “weed” growing between our crop rows. No one alive knows why Ragweed fell out of cultivation though the development of maize is a prime guess. There are no colorful berries on it, such as on bittersweet nightshade, and even when it blooms, its flowers can only dream of owning the character of dandelion's f… They also make a nice tea, which is how i found out that the leaves were delicious boiled. Season-long grazing sustained the amount of Canada thistle in the pastures and even increased the thistle in some cases, which resulted in a lower forage yield. ! I had three bites, no ill effects. Naturally, gluten occurs only in cereal grains of the grass family including wheat and closely related species: barley, rye, and triticale (a hybrid cross of wheat and rye). Add some sliced onion in the mix. 2001. Producers and researchers should be knowledgeable about the nutritive value of winter/summer annual/biennial/perennial weeds and forages so they can make the best management decisions for their particular operation or study. Have you tried taking daily doses of local, raw honey? the article mentions its use as a fiber source. Various species were also used medicinally, see Herb Blurb below. Bosworth, S. C., C. S. Hoveland, G. A. Buchanan, and W. B. Anthony. If the pigweed is eaten raw, the vitamins and minerals would be in higher amounts. This has happened because of the timely spring rains that encouraged germination and seedling growth followed by sunny dry falls that helped seed development. As for the binomial name, Ambrosia is usually translated into English as meaning “food of the gods.” A direct translation from the Greek means “unmortal” or “not mortal.” In Greek mythology “ambrosia” was sometimes the food the gods ate and or wine they drank which gave the gods (and demigods) immortality thus called “ambrosia.” But, food and drink were used interchangeably thus for some ancient writers “ambrosia” was food and for others it was drink which was also called nectar, Greek NEKtar which means “death overcoming.” Ambrosia is close to the older Sanskrit word Amrita which means “without death.” Clearly there was a long-running theme here. It makes for a fair hand drill spindle. Has anyone else ever tried this or thought about this? One time I picked a lot of them, put them in pint jars and poured a hot pickling solution on them. I have left it to shade the ground while my plants get going. Forage needs for meat goats and sheep. Thanks! Upper stems terminate in a cylindrical flower spike to six inches long. It can be aggressive but is easily controlled by pulling the young plants since it is an annual. However, the fact that Indigenous Americans were specialists at navigating starvation episodes, combined with the observation that giant ragweed seeds are comprised of about 19 percent edible oil, make it fairly certain that these seeds would not be overlooked as a food resource.” No details given. 1980. Some reports say natives would grind the seeds, bring them to boil in water, the oil would float to the top, then was ladled off. Agronomy Journal. Do you have enough to share? Thus while the seeds have oil its extraction might not have been the prime use whereas eating the grain could have been. Elsewhere natives used Ragweed stalks for rope. We’ve been taught to cut & destroy rather than use and enjoy. If you ever head to Central Fl. 1979. Plant extracts are anti-bacterial and anti-viral. No, not that I know of. Herbalists value ragweed root tea as a remedy for nausea, fevers, and menstrual disorders; Native Americans used the root tea as a laxative. A “randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study compared the effects of daily supplementation” for a month with about a teaspoon of nutritional yeast worth of beta glucans versus placebo on the “physical and psychological health…of self-described ‘moderate’ ragweed … In: Luginbuhl, J-M, J. T. Green, J. P. Mueller, and M. H. Poore. Thank you. One study says yes because the seeds that were found were larger than found in nature. Please do not take my word for anything, but check all information for yourself. I am a hay fever sufferer myself and inherited that from my father. I enjoy them. Some variaties of oats may contain gluten, but storage and handling of grains and grain products can lead to glutens from other grains appearing in the oats. Other that having a rough texture, the boiled leaves taste amazing. Tried a then newer over the counter allergy medicine that seemed to work until the 8th day of the 10 tablets that were in the box and then it quit working and I was right back to where I started….Sicker than an old dog ! And I know a retired doctor in south Florida who tells me he’s eating Ragweed, Ambrosia artemisiifolia. And Ragweed certainly is not favored by farmers now who view it as a vile invader that chokes domestic crops. The weedy hay in one experiment contained 15 percent weeds – dandelion, yellow rocket (Barbarea vulgaris), and white cockle (Silene latifolia ssp. I’m pretty sure we have Ambrosia tenuifolia in our yard here in Tennessee. Generally said Ragweed is not an “antique vegetable” as such things are sometime called. were you eating stevia plants? Lots of people liked it. Canola are a group of rapeseed cultivars which were bred to have very low levels of erucic acid and are especially prized for use for human and animal food. Thanks again. Wonderful knowledge. No; it is better as a tea or you can dry the herb. Confirm the culprit: To verify a ragweed allergy, see an allergist who will look for a combination of a positive skin test or blood test while asking you about any allergic rhinitis or asthma symptoms. (5 mL) Servings Per Container: Approximately 24 : Amount per Serving: % Daily Value: Ragweed Extract (Ambrosia artemisiifolia, wildcrafted) 500 mg † †Daily Value not established. Just speculation, but I wonder if the “ambrosia” taxonomy speaks to ragweed as a nectar plant for bees. The lambs used in their study basically rejected Jerusalem artichoke, curly dock, hoary asylum, and Canada thistle, which may be due to physical characteristics such as spines and hairs on most of these species.13 Giant foxtail, wild mustard (Synapis arvensis), giant ragweed, and cocklebur (Xanthium strumarium) were less palatable than oats when tested by Marten and Anderson,12 with a very low percentage (35.0 percent, 2.5 percent, 0.0 percent, and 0.0 percent, respectively) being consumed after 12 days. You should make the tea from the leaves…not the blossoms. They just were not worth the effort as food. Another study says no reporting that there are large seeds in nature as well. I found this in our yard (giant ragweed), it’s flowering right now but if you are interested still I can save some seeds for you! I had heard it would cause fever and boil your brain. i have tried popping the seeds of the giant ragweed unsuccessfully. As for allergens, Ragweed is second only to mold in causing allergic symptoms. Ragweed - Medicinal Benefits - Woodbury-Middlebury, CT - Native Americans in the Eastern Woodlands found many clever uses of this pesky plant Ragweed pollen is used in homeopathic remedies for treatment of hay fever symptoms. Most Canada thistle shoots were eliminated with two intense defoliations over two to three years with the high-intensity/low-frequency rotational grazing, due to cattle defoliation and trampling. So perhaps the Giant Ragweed could have been used for food and for oil but the latter in a medicinal sense. I have many of them and have always thought they had to have some use other than to have to pull up or curse at… I’ve been learning to eat the weeds more and more and am pleasantly surprised how much we have before our very eyes if only we knew how easy some foods are and grow on their own. Ragweed is a plant that many people speak of but might not know for sure what it looks like.
