Lamb’s Quarter Forest – Conversations with Stella

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. It’s a forest, Lady Human. Our wonderful bulldog land has turned into a forest.

Me:  Bulldog land? You mean our yard?

Stella:  What else could I mean?

Me:  Of course. Sorry. The lamb’s quarter has been prolific this year.

Stella:  Does ‘prolific’ mean ‘taken over’?

Me:  Well, temporarily. But…

Stella:  But I could get lost out there. It is crowding our paths and shadowing the ground.

Me:  Think of it as shade in the summer heat.

Stella:  No. What are you going to do about it?

Me:  Right now, nothing. The lamb’s quarter can be edible. And it’s not a bad thing to have another food source.

Stella:  Food for us?

.Me:  It’s like a giant garden salad. But precautions have to be taken. And I don’t know about you all.

Stella: Nope. You forgot who you were talking to. We are bulldogs. We don’t do green food.
