    It was an unexpected gift of about 3/4 left over from a sawdust block after planting some in wood.

    I had to make a quick decision what to do and this is what I did rather than throw it away.

    I had some perlite and a tub so nothing to loose!

    Those 'Green Things' are Very Young Fiddle Head Ferns.

    Roy is correct and those are the Ostrich fern fiddles. I tried some Cinnamon ferns before and they were OK but unless I was very hungry or showing someone and having fun I wouldn't go out of my way for them. They tasted like eating grass to me....

    Many years ago the company I worked for had a lot of stores in Canada and made huge profits there so they started having an annual 'Canadian Appreciation Days' in which they featured as many Canadian produce products as they could. Anything from those fiddle head ferns to smoked sausages and everything in between.

    The first year in they had the fiddle head fern greens and some potatoes in the produce part of the AD but I can't remember what else. Anyway, we got our produce loads on Monday-Wednesday and Friday. The AD broke on Wednesday and we hadn't gotten the greens on the Monday but they were on the load for Wednesday.

    I'd just dug them off the freight (they came in 10# burlap bags) and was just getting ready to open the bag and put them on display when a woman asked if we'd gotten the greens in. I said yes, they are in this bag. She said "Don't bother opening the bag, I'll take all you have". Well that was all I had.

    She wasn't from Canada but from Northern Minnesota or Michigan and had gathered the greens from the nearby streams when she was a girl and she hadn't had them in years.

    I ended up ordering three bags for the Friday delivery-One for display and the other two for her.

    I did try them and like the gal in the video said, they do taste a bit like a cross between asparagus and green beans---'kinda'--

    Sounds interesting. I'll have to look for them. Doubt we have them in South Texas though. You never know....
