The other day I went foraging in my own backyard. I was surprised at how many edible things I found. In the food garden, we currently have cucumbers, tomatoes, cilantro, rhubarb, strawberries, marigolds, and garlic scapes growing.
In the flower garden we have pansies and roses.
In the wild we have dandelions, pineapple weed, pinecones, spuce tips, thyme flowers, and clovers.
Close to the house but not actually in the yard there is also wild carrot and purple clovers.
