Let’s all eat our lawns!
I came to read and to post a question and I see everybody's doing it! I've made candied tangelos and like them. I've read about a treat that was popular with Victorian children called candied violets. I have what I think are wild violets growing in my lawn (I do not mind them at all, just like I don't mind dandelions) and I want to candy them. Only I'm not sure that's what they are. I'm a kinda new gardener and I don't want to kill myself by mistaking a Pansy of Purple Death Flower for a Violet. This is a pic of what I have. There are also completely purple ones but they don't look as robust. So... whaddaya think? Can I eat it?
