Today we thought we'd introduce you to a common wild edible known as Purple Deadnettle (or, more dramatically, the Purple Archangel). Watch the video and let us know if it grows in your area, and if you've tasted it!
Below, we have included the original comments from this blog post. Additional comments may be made via Facebook, below.

Oh wow, I have many of them in my backyard, which I've been pulling and throwing away instead of including in my green juicing. Great video!

Have you tasted them, yet, Carole ! Ours are all dying now. I guess we need to harvest them in their prime before they're all gone!

Oddly, I went out and found only a couple that don't have the purple flowers, yet, because they're so young. So I am waiting for the flowers to develop to make sure. The back yard had many of them and I kept pulling them up and throwing them away. So I either did too good a job pulling or they are early spring plants and their time is over. I promise to let you know!
