Ah. Cauliflower, brocoflower (shoot, they have the word "flower" right in them), asparagus, and artichoke.

Chamomile, hemp, and zuchinni.

Actually, most flowers are edible, as long as you stay away from the poisonous plants. Granted, there may be some difference between "edible" and "tastes disgusting".

Does anyone else share my interest in wilderness survival tactics, including knowing what you can eat?

Or how you can decide if you can eat something you can't identify?

When I was a smaller kid, this was a homework subject. Nowadays, I feel like the keeper of the how-to-start-a flame...

I know a wee bit about wilderness survival. I've taken many a trip packing only half the rations needed for the duration and 'living of the land' for the rest. Weight sucks.

Most of the time, I hunt/fish for the food, but when the game is not cooperating, I turn to the other side of my omnivore instinct.

There are many field recognition guides and even some cookbooks around for your geo-regions.

Oh yeah, pine needles, multiple tree barks, and don't forget all the water plants as well - not exactly flowers, but great for wilderness cooking. There are quite a few common natural spices out there as well.
