Lona, we are eating our Pak Choy which has flower heads. Still tastes the same. Give it a try.
Dill 15 May, Molyles (United Kingdom - warm/temperate climate)
Dill should never be grown near fennel. Cross polination will result in both plants tasting of fennel!

Choko/Chayote (also Chayote squash, christophene, chouchou, mirliton) 17 May, Mike n Lucy (United Kingdom - warm/temperate climate)
We are now growing chouchou in a temporary greenhouse in Bexley in Kent. It came from the stone of the fruit and is growing like crazy with a bit of fleece netting over it to keep it warm. The fruit makes a fantastic juice esepcially when mixed with a smidge of orange juice. The juice is used in Brazil as a natural remedy to help lower blood pressure. It sure does seem to work.
Cabbage 25 Mar, Paul Gilbert (United Kingdom - warm/temperate climate)
Seedlings of early cultivars should be thinned to15 to 18 inches apart and late cultivars to 2 feet apart, once they form two true leaves. To avoid damaging the roots of remaining plants, snip extra plants off instead of pulling them out of the ground. Apply an organic fertilizer when plants are half grown

Silverbeet (also Swiss Chard or Mangold) 29 Aug, Helen Elam (United Kingdom - cool/temperate climate)
the thick white stem of Swiss chard is cooked separately: cut up in sticks of 6 cm long by 1 cm diameter. cooked gently in butter. I have eaten this as a n accompaniment to girolles and riz de veau - the leaves were cooked and pureed to make a wonderful sauce.
Celeriac 01 Sep, chris (United Kingdom - cool/temperate climate)
In France they use celeriac in a different (and succulent) way: Thinly grated, raw, just like carrots, and mixed with a mustardy mayonnaise. Delicious, especially next to a green salad or thinly grated carrots.
