As a kid I used to eat grass, these little purple and white flowers, and those tiny yellow circle flowers that you find on the ground in the summer. Probably have no idea what I'm talking about. But I basically ate grass and flowers.

Anyone else have that habit as a kid?

I did once try to eat a leaf to prove a point. It was not pleasant.

Yeah, i used to eat dandelions. Probably those "yellow circle" ones you talk about. They're actually pretty good!

Yeah, I think I once tried those clovers that you find on the ground :P
I don't think I ate it but it pretty much tasted like how you'd expect a plant to taste lol

The only plant I ever ate or sucked on was Honeysuckle.

When I was five-ish I claimed to my sister that I was adopted from India and that one of our local customs was eating grass.
Yep, she was convinced...

Sorry, I just figured that most people moved on to human food by a certain age. :P
I guess there are exceptions. :)

Some old friends of mine convinced me when I was younger that weeds had milk in them. So of course, I had to try it. :lol:

I ate some grass. It was OK, until dad told me that someone may have pissed on it. It wasn't very appealing anymore after that. :P

When I was 4 I ate some mushrooms that were out in our yard. I got really sick and had to go to the hospital. After that they never trusted me to be by myself in the yard

Yep, but they were eatable plants. I knew which plants were eatable back then.

flowers, grass, leaves, my diet consisted of all sorts of foliage during my younger childhood. mostly goofing off with friends, the possibility of poison sortof gave a rise a la russian roulette

Anyone else have that habit as a kid?

I ate flowers cause I thought they were pretty. Luckily I live in a climate where there are very few poisonous flowers.

We used to pick leaves growing through the fence of one of the teacher's "Gardening Club" gardens and cook them with magnifying glasses. We stopped when someone mentioned in assembly about that teacher's favourite plant suddenly starting to go missing... Oops (:
