Boy. I'm willing to try just about anything I don't have!
In particular, I'd take douglah or other dark 7-pot, any yellow (and tasty) superhot, any baccatums, any crazy hybrids, any wilds and anything you think I'd dig!
After seeing your picture pop up here a few times, it's funny picturing a little version of you running around picking watercress, haha! I picture some six year old metalhead, wearing a Motörhead t-shirt with the sleeves cut off or something, carrying a wicker basket
(Hammer pants too, maybe?! )
Growing up on AJ's farm, he was taught at a young age how to forage for edible plants and live in harmony with nature. But metal was always in his heart!
I knew about the flowers, I didn't realize the greens are edible! I've been wanting to plant some for quite a while. Good to know!
Definitely do! They are such a useful plant. Besides being tasty, they're loaded with vitamin C, they require almost no nutrients or water, they attract pollenators and they support resident populations of beneficial insects like ladybugs and hoverflies. And since there are trailing and dwarf varieties, they can fit in almost any size empty space in a garden.
That's a gorgeous bowl of gold right there HM! Might that be a chunk of bacon or ham nearest the spoon?
10-4, good buddy. I fried a pound of diced bacon and used the fat for the roux and a nice handful of bacon chips for a "garnish". I'm not sure why I call it corn chowder. It's more like cream of bacon!
You are really missing out then. I don't think I've even been out and had a good one. In the states this is a sandwich most of us are raised on. With garden tomatoes, bacon fresh from the pan, and that perfect toasting of white bread. A good amount of mayo with a little s&p sprinkling... and crisp iceberg lettuce (my gram would pick dandelion greens for hers). An American classic, but usually only when made at home.
If you ever get a chance try nasturtium greens. Like dandelions, they have a bit more bitterness than plain ol' lettuce - which goes really well with mayo, sweet tomatoes and fatty, salty bacon. But they also have that sharp peppery flavor that can really make a BLT shine. The flowers taste great too.
I bet you're right. We had ours with homemade black raspberry apple sauce. They were stupid, stupid good. I'm going to hit the farmer's market this week and hopefully pick up some zucchini to make more.
I can vouch for that ^. I made them for the first time this summer and they are delicious. Think of a potato pancake, but made with shredded zucchini instead. Better texture and flavor. But pretty weird looking!
