Hello magical you! I thought you might like some more seed ideas. This site has lots of fun ones. Some are pretty conventional (like the bean and the wet paper towel in the bag) but some were new to me. I like the milk carton with the window and the bird seed sponge especially.
Here’s a list of edible flowers, along with lots of safety information. We love nasturtiums here but the flowers are peppery and best suited for things like salads. We have roses for sweeter recipes but I didn’t realize how many other flowers were edible. This year I’d like to start a few new plants with edible flowers for recipes like this one….
WILDFLOWER POUND CAKE
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup flour
1-tsp. vanilla or lemon extract
5 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup assorted washed edible flower petals, small pieces
Cream the butter. Sift flour and add gradually to butter. Beat the egg yolks until thick and lemon
colored, add sugar gradually. Combine mixtures. Beat egg whites until stiff and add to mixture. Sift baking powder over mixture, beat thoroughly. Fold in fresh flower pieces. Turn into a buttered deep cake pan and bake 1 hour at 350 degrees F.
One of these years I’m really going to do a sunflower house or bean teepee, but I’m not sure this will be the summer I get to it either. I am just hoping to get lots of veggies in and give the kids each a flower garden of their own, which they always love.
What are your garden plans this year?
