Yes, I waited until some were ripe. I tasted them this morning while out walking the dog. Sweet and delicious!!!
Here is another example of my patience. For three years or more, this plant has tried to grow in the same spot in one of my flower beds. I don't know what it is. The first three years, I pulled it out when it was only about four leaves big. This year, I'm waiting for it to bloom or do whatever it is going to do. The leaves are a little furry and the insects and snails seem to leave it alone. Do you know what it is?
