It's amazing how any weeds are edible

I've eaten some of these.

I ate Broadleaf Plaintain last summer. The seed tops are good toasted.
I often eat Borage flowers as it grows abundantly in my garden. I bought
it originally for use as tea to combat sinus problems. The leaves were used 
to make the tea.
I also eat Nasturtium flowers. They're spicy.

Can you eat the Nasturtium plain off the plant?

Also would the flowers from veggies be ok to eat? (Such as okra, beans, and squash)

Lightfoot, I had heard that the Four O'clocks can cause sickness. 
Although I have them in my flower garden, I believe I'll stick to 
Nasturtiums.
 I am always delighted with the varied colors of the Four O'clocks.

Glad, I usually only eat what I know to be safe. Yes, I do eat the 
Nasturtiums right from the plant. If you noticed my Colleen's post
of the salads she made, there were  beautiful Nasturtium flowers
on the side, adding color and edible as well.

It's best to stay away from the 4 o'clocks then. They didn't bother me.
