Vegetable flowers

With much of my property turned over to the production of fruit and vegetables for the kitchen table, I find myself increasingly bedazzled by the magnificent flower displays in some gardens that I pass on my walk to work. While showy displays of almond, peach and cherry trees in late winter compensate somewhat, one must look more carefully to find the beauty inherent in a flowering vegetable garden. Here are some of the photos collected over the past decade: -

When it comes to health and natural food, i always prefer eating vegetables from my own garde!

Flowers in the vegetable garden are becoming a common sight, especially marigolds. While marigolds are useful they aren't edible, there are some edible flowers which also make good additions to the garden. I'm going to be talking about sunflowers, borage, and nasturtiums.
