A Question about the Amelanchier "Snowy Mespilus" tree

Posted: 14/07/2014 at 13:17

Yes, they're edible - a former colleague used to cook with them but I'm not sure what she cooked - there are some recipes here http://www.eattheweeds.com/amelanchier-arborea-busting-out-all-over-2/ 

Anybody know anything about cucamelons?

I don't mind eating little ones but this one felt quite big and it sort of put up a struggle on the way down

I think you've got the makings of research for a thesis there - you'll end up with a Doctorate in Horticulture at this rate ...... 

Plant ID please??

Leave it until it's confirmed Davie - you never know, there may be a wonderful ornamental form I'm not aware of ............. 

Plant ID please??

It looks very much like Fat Hen to me - an annual 'weed' that I used to hoe out of Pa's sugar beet field.  An Indian friend calls it Lamb's Quarter and cooks with it, and apparently it's also used as a herb in parts of the US.

But I might be wrong .........
