Thursday is National Weed Appreciation day (but perhaps not the kind of weed you’re thinking of).
We’re talking about weeds like Ragweed and Dandelion.
Weeds usually get a bad rap for popping up in undesirable places, so, National Weed Appreciation Day is a good time to learn more about all their benefits.
Weeds are beneficial to people and the ecosystem; wildlife, like birds and insects, sometimes depend on their seeds for nourishment.
Some weeds are edible and nutritious, while others have medicinal value.
So, the next time you’re outside and notice a weed, consider snapping a picture and researching it.
You may find out all kinds of fun information about what’s growing in your yard.
