Mallow, Common (Malva neglecta) - 02
(Mallow, Common (Malva neglecta) - 02) According to the literature, common mallow flowers, leaves and young shoots are edible, either raw or cooked, but there is a caution not to eat them from nitrogen rich or fertilized soil, particularly when these sources are inorganic, as the plant tends to concentrate the nitrogen in the leaves.  The leaves have a mild flavor and are very nutritious, which is most likely one of the reason why this wildflower was imported to the USA by European settlers.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
