Enthusiastic gardeners can get an early start harvesting spring greens that come up right in their backyard. These greens are nutritious—-high in vitamin A, vitamin C and iron. They're also low in calories, fat and cholesterol. Plus, wild greens are widely available and require no work at all—-except harvesting! As with any green, the younger the plant, the more tender it is. For the safest crop, be sure to pick greens well away from major roads or other chemically treated areas, and wash the greens well before you use them.DandelionsDandelion greens (Taraxacum officinale)—-a sure sign of spring—-are most welcome to add variety, vitamins and minerals to springtime meals.

Remember, though, that when a person sets out to gather wild edibles, he or she must do so with a great deal of caution. Some people, for example, might have allergic reactions to otherwise "safe" plants, and a number of factors—including the time of collection and method of preparation—can make a big difference in both the safety and the palatability of many free foods. You should never, of course, pick plants close to roadways, polluted waterways, croplands, or any other place where chemical sprays or fumes could have contaminated them.
