Common runny is a tasty and healthy weed

Common runny is a tasty and healthy weed

Gardeners do not like this plant, considering it a malicious weed. As soon as you uproot, move over the ground, and he again filled the whole garden ...

Gardeners and gardeners are well aware that to faint - This is a creeping rhizome that cannot be removed, carved leaves and a fragrant umbrella-flower stalk. You don't have to give it to bloom, but greens - be sure to use them on your table!

In early spring, sprouts appear on it, so tender that it is a pity to pull them out. Do not need. You can make an excellent salad from young greens of the dream, especially valuable in spring, when there are still few vegetables and herbs.

In summer, when new tender leaves grow after mowing, you can use them for cooking cabbage soup, borscht, and second courses. The Japanese, for example, prefer the ordinary salad to the usual in all seasons.

Our ancestors used to eat snow from ancient times. In "The Life of Elder Seraphim of Sarov, Hermit and Hermit," the reverend father said that for three years he ate only one desperation: he cooked cabbage soup, and sourd it like cabbage, and dried it for the winter. So the saint lived to a ripe old age. Indeed, this herb contains a lot of vitamin C, protein and up to 3% fat, as well as other biologically active substances that have a positive effect on the heart muscle.

In folk medicine, runny is used for various diseases - scurvy, gout, rheumatism, inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract.

So much for the ordinary weed - a weed that needs to be grown in your plots, and not uprooted!

I will offer readers several recipes using the dream.

Dream salad

Chop young leaves of dream, add vegetable oil, half an egg, vinegar, salt, sugar - to taste.

Horseradish salad

To prepare the dish, you will need dream leaves - two bunches (about 500 g), grated horseradish - 100 g, sour cream - 4 tbsp. spoons, salt to taste.

Harvesting for future use for borscht

1 part dream, 1 part garden quinoa, 1/3 part sorrel.

Chop everything finely, add a little salt, mix and simmer for 5 minutes (without water). Arrange in sterilized jars (preferably small) and roll up. In winter, use for cooking cabbage soup and borscht. Sleep perfectly replaces white cabbage.

On my site, I use snake from the moment it grows and until late autumn fresh, and in winter - in blanks.

Do not lead to moaning in your cads!

The weed is able to "capture" a large territory in a short time. It can only be removed by regularly mowing the lawns and weeding.


Sleep is a perennial herb with long creeping rhizomes. In gardens and vegetable gardens - a known malicious weed. More than once I had to hear complaints from summer residents about this plant. But in spite of everything, the moaning deserves attention.

Firstly, runny is widely used in ornamental gardening, varieties with variegated foliage have been bred. Decorative snow is very colorful. If you need to quickly decorate a large area, then it is perfect for this. Curtains of variegated sludge, limited by a border, also look good. Such landings almost do not require maintenance: the runny tightly fills the space provided, displacing all competitors! The plant tolerates shading well, feels good even under the canopy of fir trees, so it is often used to create a forest zone in the garden. To maintain decorativeness, the plants are periodically fed.

Secondly, runny is one of the most useful plants, a storehouse of vitamins and microelements. Its leaves contain nitrogenous compounds, citric and malic acids, flavonoids, vitamin C, mineral salts, essential oils, resins, saponins, and starch. For a long time, gleaming has been used in folk medicine. It was often used as a blood purifier. This useful weed also improves the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, normalizes salt metabolism. With rheumatism, compresses are made from sleepiness.

Thirdly, sleepy is a healthy and tasty food product. Even in the old days, cabbage soup, soups, side dishes were prepared from young leaves, used to dry in raw and fermented form, dried for future use.

There are a lot of recipes for dishes from the dream, I would like to share my favorite ones. These dishes are delicious and very quick to prepare.

Oatmeal - 2 tbsp. spoons

Peel the potatoes, cut them, put them in boiling water, cook for 5 minutes. Drain and chop the sorrel, put in a saucepan, cook for 2 minutes, add 2 tablespoons of oatmeal and immediately remove from the stove. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

The second useful weed that I would like to talk about is nettle

Medium stellate, or wood lice

An annoying weed, well known to most owners of suburban areas, will very soon begin to tighten the soil in the beds and flower beds with a green carpet. It is not for nothing that this plant was called woodlice: the average starlet does not tolerate drought and prefers to grow in damp places, on well-moistened soil.

Medium starweed, or wood lice, is a widespread weed and medicinal plant

In folk medicine, woodlice herb is used as an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, hemostatic, antiseptic. Due to the high content of ascorbic acid and the presence of carotene in the plant, fresh stellate herb is also used as a vitamin remedy in spring, it is very useful to add it to salads.

Infusions and decoctions of woodlice are used as an external remedy for skin diseases, abrasions, acne. A foot bath with a decoction of this plant helps to get rid of edema, and a bath with an infusion or decoction of the herb has a mild soothing effect. Gruel from woodlice brewed with boiling water is used for joint diseases, radiculitis (applied to the affected area).

In spring, it is very useful to add fresh woodlice herb to salads.

For internal use, infusions and juice from fresh herbs are prepared. They have a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular and nervous system, help lower blood pressure, folk medicine also uses these remedies in the treatment of liver and gallbladder diseases, metabolic disorders.

With regard to the procurement of medicinal raw materials, opinions differ: some practitioners believe that woodlice grass can be collected during flowering and dried at a temperature not higher than +40 degrees, while others insist that the healing properties are preserved only in a fresh plant, and use it for fresh season or (less often) fermented for the winter as a vitamin supplement.


Otherwise, woodlice is called starworm. The plant multiplies quickly, and in a damp summer it can spread to most beds. Vegetation lasts a long time: from May to October. The leaves contain more vitamins of groups A, C and E. Woodlice has a high concentration of trace elements, iodine and potassium.

Woodlice is a medicinal plant. Doctors recommend using it raw for thyroid diseases, cystitis, hypertension, bronchitis and arthritis. By adding a few leaves of the plant to the salad, you can prevent the development of gallstone and urolithiasis.

Housewives sprinkle salad, soup or the second with finely chopped herbs. Due to its neutral taste, woodlice is suitable for most ready-made meals.
