fennel and poblano peppers

The whispy frond stuff is fennel.  The stalks have a great flavor, but they are too tough to eat raw.  I've heard that they can be steamed or microwaved to make them tender, and I might have to try it.
I'm going to try uprooting a whole plant so that I can eat on of the bulbs at the plant base this weekend.  That's the part most people eat.  The seeds are also used in lots of Asian cooking; some of these plants are flowering, so seeds won't be too far behind.
The other photo is of my poblano peppers.  We might be having some stuffed peppers sometime soon.
