Pretty Enough to Eat

This year I've planted many things for the first time, including nasturtiums. Nasturtiums are beautiful edible flowers that are great in salads and can also be used as a garnish. Since this was my first go-'round I decided to keep it small, limiting the nasturtium planting to the border of my front herb garden. The plants have been doing wonderfully well, and we get a new crop of blossoms pretty much every day. I've found that I really like this combination of herbs surrounded by flowers, as it makes a great decorative front border for our garden.
