I know, three posts in one day is a little extreme, but I just had to share this. After school, I looked out into the garden to see Teenage Monkey eating morning glory blooms. I know, weird. He has always done it. I checked and the blooms are safe to eat, just stay away from the seeds. A few years ago, his Meme (aunt) decided to try them too. She did not understand the appeal. I am going to take her word for it and leave them alone.
I watched my son for a few minutes and went out to see what else he was snacking on. He ate the ferny tops of the asparagus. He ate Swiss chard straight from the plant. He ate basil. He finally, found a small zucchini and that seemed to satisfy his snack attack. Better than milk and cookies, if you ask me.
Blooming in my garden: Allium schubertii
