Lynn has a lot of herbs in her garden and a lot flowers in her garden. And, she has a lot of flowers she can eat in her garden. Lynn likes Tropaeolum Nasturtium and they are great in salads. They give it a peppery flavor, very
spicy. The leaves are even tasty. Lathyrus odoratus Sweetpea also goes well in a salad. It's great as a decorative garnish. Richard likes the subtle colors. Viola Pansy and Viola Violet are also good in a salad or dip them in
egg white and sugar and one can then decorate cakes. Or instead of cake try it with vegetables, an idea to get our kids to eat vegetables. Richard likes plants that are utilitarian, plants that are beautiful, but as well as
plants that can be eaten. It's all here.
