My kid ate grass seed and edible groundcovers…

We’ve been working on fixing up our lawn which took quite a hit over the long, frigid winter. I’d prefer no grass, but with a puppy and an active, outdoor loving child, we find grass works best for us. My husband laid some new soil in the many bare patches and spread out some seed. Our daughter helped with the seed. We recently did an experiment where we grew bean seeds in different mediums (coffee grinds, soil, and vermicompost). You can see where this is going right? So, she ate some grass seed to see if it would sprout in her tummy so that she can poop out a lawn. Yep, I’m a proud mama! (Don’t worry; we had a talk about the dangers of eating things that we find outside).

And so, while we wait for our grass seed to grow and excrete… here is an awesome slideshow that highlights groundcovers that you may actually want to eat.
