Notes:

The yellow plant is fascinating as there are buds, flowers and seed pods on the same plant. Not sure it will be edible – probably not.

    Top plant with yellow flowers & fruits.
    Not able to see more of the plant to be certain. I’m guessing a type of Senna. Sorry, I’m not an expert of this genus and can’t be certain which species this is. Also, the Senna species that I’m familiar with are not edible. Perhaps you could research for other species edibility. Check out these two species in the group. The Senna corymbosa & Senna multiglandulosa. Click on images to enlarge. Best wishes!
