The Lord made the world, gave us nutritious plants to eat, with beautiful flowers, and we call them weeds, lol.

I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that wherever you go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator.  A single plant, a blade of grass, or one speck of dust is sufficient to occupy all your intelligence in beholding the art with which it has been made  - Saint Basil

People brought dandelions to America, I read, as food. Yet people today ironically don't like eating dandelions (typically) and now they are seen as weeds. The trick to eating dandelions I think is boiling them multiple times and throwing out the water between the boilings. I only boiled them once and it tasted bad still.

Some are native to N. America, although the most common ones were introduced. As far as eating, they're better when young, before the flower turns to seed. When dandelions get older, the leaves.
