Just sown Morning Glory for the first time.

Do you have trouble with slugs eating Morning Glory ?

Still too early here to start seeds,but I'm inspired by this. This will be my first attempt at starting seeds. Just a few flats in the garage windows, not very impressive in comparison to this. Couple more weeks. Snowed here again this A.M.

Yes you can eat the flowers Juliano, i have seen chefs put them in salads, they are quite peppery apparently. I just put mine straight into my pots they are very unfussy plants even self seeding in practically nothing!! watch for caterpillars of the cabbage white they will strip them in a day if not careful
