Wild and Not-So-Wild Food Plants

The figs (likely Ficus carica) growing in my garden.
I wanted to quickly share some photos of the food plants I have found in my yard and within a block of my house. I will be using these in my kitchen for sure. Seeing what grows naturally around me gives me a good idea what “crops” will likely succeed in this area.

A variety of mint (Mentha species) grows all over the place around here.

Wild Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) which doesn’t form a bulb is a”weed” in my garden.
These Azorean Blackberries (Rubus hochstetterorum) are welcome in my garden.
There are little tufts of parsley (Petroselinum hortense) growing in any crevice it can find.

There are many walls and fields overrun by Nasturtiums (Tropaeolum species) which have edible, almost spicy flowers.

I thought this was corn from a distance, but it is not. I still think it is in the corn/maize (Zea) family. I’ll keep an eye on it and see how it develops.
