Thank you Kinky for sharing, this sounds good. Never had flowers for food before, I will give it a shot and see how it tastes. I cut some collard greens leaves and I plan on sauteing them tomorrow for lunch. Maybe make a Chinese noodle dish with it, should be good.

Dusty, you remind me that I need to make some bread so I can have tomato sandwiches! We have a few tomatoes piled up on the counter, a couple of cukes, and the Hansel & Gretel eggplants are coming on strong. I put some in tonight's lasagne.

I have a few cherry tomatoes with my breakfast this morning, gosh they are wonderful. I didn't make the collard greens yet, hope I will cook it for dinner.

I had zucchini flowers and more daylily buds with dinner last night. I'm on a lomein soup rampage. Today I had some blackberries and mulberries. The actual cultivated food is still taking it's time. I did see two baby zukes today, and I'm planning to eat them for dinner.

I think I will plant couple blackberries next year so I can pick on them like you Kinky. I am picking on my cherry tomatoes, as soon as I see a red one I pop it in my mouth :-)

Tonight I had yellow squash, zucchini, and anaheim peppers sliced thinly and stirfried in an old cast iron skillet with olive oil, really good stuff! The Anaheims are really nice peppers, only started growing them two years ago, they don't have a lot of heat but do have a wonderful pepper flavor, more savory than bell peppers. My poblanos are also coming in, they also are not particularly hot but have a great flavor.

I cheated. The blackberries I actually planted still haven't ripened. My property's backed by woods, and I inherited muchos wineberries (invasive but yummy) and black raspberries. Not to mention a couple of mulberry trees. Not planted by me :blush. LOL I take credit for them, anyway. BTW I also ate some blueberries. I planted a couple of bushes...I think I may have eaten about 10 so far. LOL Livin' off the land, y'all!

I like Anaheim peppers as well, I have 3 that are ready to eat, they are good and they seem to be happy with me. I have 3 red bell pepper that so far have nothing on them. I have been fighting hornworms and I think I am on top. I have been watching my plants and pick them as I find them. I even taught my mom how to find them. It's amazing how fast they grow. I should've taken pics of each one as they change in size everyday. I think I killed total of 20, today was only one but it was the biggest. Amazing creatures, hate to kill them but oh well, all is good for the sake of my tomatoes.

We have two zucchini ready to pick, one green and one yellow. I'm thinking Sunday we'll have them with steak to celebrate the garden's first offering. The tomatoes are still a ways off and the peppers are just flowering.
