Plantain is popping up everywhere! Check your front lawn, check next to the sidewalk, check … well … almost anywhere in the great outdoors. And when you find it please don’t kill it. It may look like a weed, but in reality it is a whole medicine cabinet! Not only do its leaves fight infections and rashes; but its seeds, when they arrive in mid to late summer, promote the healing of the digestive system, much the same way Mucinex would! Love your plantain, cherish it, and learn all of the wonderful properties of this most humble of spring “weeds”!
