Molly, you are so very welcome! I'm sure you know that there are edible flowers. Nasturtium flowers have a bit of a peppery taste, lavender flowers can be eaten in lots of foods from cakes to candies and ice cream, rose petals and pansies can be candied and eaten and many herb flowers are also edible. Many people consider fried Hemerocallis (daylily) flowers and fried and stuffed squash flowers a delicacy. Here's an interesting site on edible flowers.
Happy munching, whether it's your bell peppers or newly found flowers!
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
