Anyone doing anything unusual with garden plants from your summer garden that people think you only use for landscaping purposes? :) I have heard lots of people use dandelions in their salads.

No dandelions in this yard! Hubs makes sure of that. People say that stuffed zuke blossoms are good but I've never made them.

Now that the yucca has finished blooming, I might try to dig up some yucca root and try that!

We ate dandy greens as a kid. DH won't allow weeds in the yard so there is chemicals we never heard of on it and I would not want to take chances. Kinda peppery or bitter if I remember. And grandma would fry zuke blossoms, dip in flour and egg. They were good but I want the zukes so need the blossoms!

Last year I wanted to try Nasturtiums, dad gave me a plant. Just as the blooms appeared so did tiny tiny black bugs. Never got to try eating one.

I have a ginger called "Red Buttons", you can eat parts of the flowers, kind of like sweet tarts. I put purslane in my salads. I have Amaranthus plants, the leaves are edible, like spinach, and they're really colorful in the garden.
