Eat the weed
A pot, a garden, a walk in the park can yield nature's most amazing nutritional supplements
I am obsessive about my evening walk among the working fields behind my home in the outskirts of Vadodara. My favourite time is an hour before sundown, when the light is soft and mellow and the day’s heat intensifies the exotic fragrance of the hedgerows, shrubs, trees and fields. Besides disengaging me fully from the day, my evening walks bring unexpected encounters with creatures of the wild: nilgai, hares, wild boar, antelope, peacock/hens, mongoose, myriad birds and the occasional palm civet and slithering snake. And they have opened my eyes to the world of weeds.
