Eating Lamb’s Quarters You know that weed popping up in between your heads of lettuce, spinach leaves, and pretty much all the plants and established rows that you’ve been persistently trying to maintain within your garden? You know, the one with those diamond-looking leaves that no matter how many times you pull it out, it seems to have a million other siblings to take its place. If you’ve ever worked in a garden, or have even just examined the “weeds” growing in your backyard, you’re probably familiar with what I’m talking about. But did you know that that weed you’ve been relentlessly pulling out is just as edible (and tasty) as any of those veggies you’ve been preciously trying to keep away from the nagging pest? The ubiquitous weed in which I’m referring (pictured above) is known as lamb’s quarter and is a member of the Chenopodium album family, which also includes beets and spinach.

Seasonal Eats: 5 Ways to Enjoy Lambs Quarters A Bunch of Lambs Quarters from the Highland Park Farmers' Market (Heather Parlato/LAist) Lambs quarters (sometimes seen as one word, lambsquarters) is a wild edible leafy green that usually appears in farmers' markets in early spring, but with the exceptionally temperate winter we've had in Southern California, many spring greens are arriving early.
