4. Landscaping
At least kudzu landscaping is edible! ;)

Actually, also pine trees are edible, namely part of the bark (phloem?), in my language 'pettu'. It's washed, dried and grinded into flour. AFAIK all indigenous nordic peoples both Eurasia and America have been eating pettu. A really delicious edible pine tree is cembra (Swiss pine, Siberian pine), with huge fatty seeds. If you can get them before the squirrel does. If you don't, then get the squirrel. ;)

One more comment on amaranth. I just read somewhere that "wild" amaranth has become unresistable weed in many places in America - doesn't die with monsanto poison, too hard to get rid off manually. SO WHY EVEN TRY, EAT THE AMARANTH! :)

Edible landscaping is beautifull thing and I'm glad you mentioned it. One of my favourite plants is saskatoon.
