Are Hostas Edible? Excerpts from a Gardening Conversation|
By AlwaysWeeding on March 13, 2010
The following is an excerpt from a conversation on one of the gardening forums I frequent. I got permission from those I quoted to make an article from their humorous observations about eating hostas. The conversation was started by "Marie", who had already done some tasting of various hostas in her garden. She eventually baked a cake and decorated it very artistically with hosta and berries. Before you go off and bake that cake, enjoy the observations by experienced hosta snackers.
