My Mum used to put flowers in salads in the 1970s. I remember her saying we had to eat everything in the bowl. I looked down and saw a greenfly on the rose petals! Vegan tendencies from an early age! I still like to put flowers in food – borage flowers look pretty frozen into ice cubes for drinks. Rose petals go nicely in a fruit salad and you can’t beat peppery nasturtiums in a green salad.
Now the evening are getting cooler and the leaves are changing colour, soon my nasturtiums will die back and that will be the end of nasty salads for this year… Hopefully they will self-seed and pop up again next year!
