I live on a sustainable family farm and work for a humanitarian aid organization. My goal is to have a simple beautiful life. The Quaker acronym SPICE (simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality) guides my life.
I'm all about getting as much out of food as possible and thus avoid waste. Here's a great list of edible flowers. Use them to add flavor, color, and texture to foods. One flowering plant that's not mentioned is broccoli. Just because a head of broccoli has started blooming doesn't mean you can't eat it. In fact, one fellow farmer insists that it tastes better when the little yellow blooms appear. Bon appetit!
