Their language is something like Greek with latin alphabet but with influence from Italian language. The Graecanic area is part of the cultural and linguistic heritage of the Magna Graecia and the later Byzantine Empire.

I have no idea if the wild greens we eat in Greece are common in other countries and if people eat these plants or they think these greens as weeds.
They are no weeds! They are healthy wild greens
I took some photos from the wild greens we collect from plot the last week. Before I post the photos I read a comment in my blog from Bob and when I open his blog I laugh because he had written the same post but for the edible wild greens of Turkey. I think you must read it also.

One of the common Greek wild plants I can find around the plot is Spartium junceum.
We call this Mediterranean bush “sparto” and it blossom in spring. In some cases you can find it grew in gardens or streets. I love the beautiful yellow flowers of this plant.
The english name of this plant is Spanish Broom or Weaver’s Broom.
