These are totally yummy & so much fun to teach your children that certain flowers are used for many things. If your child has allergies, or asthma or hayfever though, I would not recommend eating any type of flower blooms .

Dandelions are used for many things, such as dandelion tea, dandelion greens (which I love) & you can also dip the flowers into a tempura batter & deep fry, which are awesome!!

Who wouldn't think Snap dragon flowers aren't just beautiful in the summertime. They are always so bright and cheery & another of my favorites. Snap dragon blooms are also edible. You can add then to your salads for a beautiful color. Make sure that any flowers you plant to eat have not been sprayed with pesticides . If you have hay fever, or allergies you may also not want to eat flower blooms.

Did you know that besides being a beautiful garden plant that hosta plants are edible? When hosta plants are at least 2 years old, so your plant doesn't die out, You can harvest the little shoots that pop up in the Springtime. You should harvest the shoots around the outside edges, and leave the shoots in the middle as to allow the plant to continue to grow. Hosta can be chopped up and put into stir fry, or it can be drizzled with olive oil and herbs and baked, just as you would do with asparagus. You can also wrap it with bacon and bake.
