Here daughter Pearl lays in a bed of Purple Archangel which is a very common wild plant in Michigan. It is also a wild edible. Wickipedia has this to say; Young plants have edible tops and leaves, good in salads or in stirfry as a spring vegetable. If finely chopped it can also be used in sauces, but there is little to recommend about its flavour. I ate some this morning plain out of the garden and it is a very mild green with a kind of fuzzy texture. It never fails to amaze me how much food grows all about us that we are totally oblivious to. We really need to begin to think beyond the grocery store.
