The leaves of the Cuckoo flower are one of the tastiest things you can find in a summer meadow.
I thoroughly recommend that you try it.

Now I didn’t know that; I guess I’ve missed my opportunity for this year. We must eat a ludicrously small proportion of the possible species. And yet people still bother to grow turnips and chicory for food.

I would likewise recommend hawthorn and beech leaves in the spring, ransoms, jack-by-the-hedge and wild spinach.
None of which you could possibly make a substantial meal of, but all good for a wayside nibble.

I knew about wild garlic and hawthorn. Didn’t know that about beech, and I don’t think I even know what jack-by-the-hedge and wild spinach look like.
