Edible Flowers Of Choys
Some of your favorite greens can give you a second crop when then flower.  Many of the Asian greens have flowers that are edible. In this video watch as we explore the great yellow edible flowers of bok choy. 

When plants like lettuce, argula and Asian greens like choy and mizuna mature they bolt or flower.  Lettuce flowers are not edible, however most of the Asian greens are edible.  You will find the flowers are often yellow and can be added to dishes as a garnish or can be eaten on a salad. So next time when you see your greens flowering and are about to pull them out save the flowers.  They make a great second crop.
