Great Green Gardening Books: Have Your Flowers and Eat Them Too

Since "permaculture" became a part of my vocabulary, I have felt some guilt about the wealth of flowers in my garden. I have over the past few years made efforts to increase the number of edible plants that my sun restricted garden will allow, so imagine my delight when I discovered that many of the flowers in my garden are actually edible! Recipes include,  zucchini blossom fritters, lavender shortbread, rose sorbet, stir fry daylily buds. Hallelujah! Want to learn more about edible landscaping and gardening? I recommend the books presented in this post. I read all but the Edible Wild Plants book, which will be my next acquistion, of course.
