Everyone Likes Volunteers (especially edible ones)

I’m not promoting the cannibalism of our much-loved people shaped volunteers! There are some tasty plant volunteers popping up in the garden. Here’s a few:

Borage (a.k.a Starflower)


A beautiful and prolific plant that attracts beneficial insects. Bees love it! The flowers are edible and the taste reminds me of cucumbers.



Long and leggy supermodel arugula plants with lovely white flowers are popping up everywhere in the lower raised beds.



With a leave style like a lily pad, nasturti-yums have peppery edible leaves and flowers. Pollinators love ’em. The flowers are often orange, yellow and red in color.

Eat up those volunteers! 😉
