Try this link for the Nov. 19 show in which hosts Jaye Alison Moscariello and Bill Taylor interviewed Rich Giordano of Old Sturbridge Village and All Hill Farm in central Massachusetts, and Nikki Ausschnitt of Petit Teton Farm in Yorkville CA:

Towards the end of the show, we mentioned our weed of the month: Mallow (Malva spp).  Mary Aigner sent me a link about it:

At Floodgate Farm we are overrun with it in a good way; when the rains come on our mountain they threaten to wash all soluble nutrients away (read the dairy manure and rock powders I paid good money for to build up our nutrient-poor soil). So a fraction of the huge amount of malva growing after the summer veggies are frozen out, we eat and sell at local farmers’ markets (they make great chips dehydrated after coating with olive and coconut oil, curry, a bit of salt or bullwhip kelp or tamari, crushed sunflower seeds and nutritional yeast).

What we don’t eat has bio-accumulated nutrients for subsequent crops. That nasty deep taproot that makes them hard to pull is also what makes them such great bio-accumulators. After heavy rains I will pull some for composting as we can’t possibly use and sell it all, and some leaves are the size of dinner plates!

The book Edible Wild Plants by John Kallas PhD, Gibbs Smith 2010 has great info on using mallow and 14 other wild plants. The first in what hopefully will be a series with chapters detailing each plant from seedling through maturity, and compares it with common look-alikes. This volume has 15 common “weeds” and planned sequels will have others. This is the best wild plant book I own.
