Nasturtiums

Nasturtium Flower

I was walking in my garden this morning perusing all the lovely tomato blossoms, cucumber seedlings, and little tiny buds on my pepper plants when something caught my eye: a brilliant orange nasturtium flower! I’ve never grown nasturtiums before and I hear they’re edible but I have yet to try them out. They are relatively easy to grow since you just plop them in the ground and water occasionally. The leaves make this plant distinct.

    I made kimchi out of my nasturtiums… it was okay, although the spices largely overwhelmed the flavor of the flowers. However, their peppery bite goes very well as a sandwich green.
