9. Eat Them
Many so-called weeds are edible and/or have medicinal uses. The young greens of dandelions (pictured), dock, chicory and other common "weeds" can be eaten raw in salads or cooked like fresh spinach. Chicory root is often added to coffee to enhance its flavor. Pick up a copy of the classic wild-foods field guide Stalking the Wild Asparagus by Euell Gibbons ($12 at amazon.com), and you may find yourself having weeds for dinner.
10. Learn to Love 'em:
One man's weed is another man's rose. If you can't beat em, maybe you should just join em, and appreciate weeds for the beautiful wonders of nature they truly are. Many weeds are native plants that Mother Nature intended to thrive in your area that's why can be so hard to kill. Learning to love weeds is just a matter of expanding your cultural horizons. For example, in Japan, moss is cultivated and prized for use in landscaping, while in the U.S. and elsewhere, moss is commonly eradicated with chemical pesticides.
