Not much in the fridge just now so took the clippers and my basket out and found salad makings in the garden. These will go with the tomatoes green peppers and beans I picked this morning. There’s some lovely red jalapeño peppers out there, too but I am told that bush is the really hot ones. The mild ones are not red yet. I’m not sure what I am going to do with these but they will not be in tonight’s salad in any case! But I found kale, nasturtium leaves and flowers, celery leaves, lemon balm, rosemary, & thyme. The little blue flowers are also eatable but darned if I can remember the name of that prickly plant. I have some napa cabbage in the fridge to fill it out. Himself will get Tuna with his and I might make some cheese toast & lemon aide. Doesn’t that sound like a nice dinner for a hot evening?
Jalapeño peppers. The mild ones on the left and the hot ones to right, under a gauze of spider web!
And the butterflies are really enjoying the zinnias!
Is the blue flower – borage? It’s definitely a hairy plant.
it is. But the bees love it and the flowers look cute in the salad and are eatable tho they don’t really add much flavor to the salad.
