Here they come…

23 Mar

As you may have realised I’m a big fan of the macro. There’s something magical about capturing the minutiae of life. Here’s a little one of the nasturtiums that, along with the other seedlings I planted, are emerging on my windowsill.

I never realised that the leaves are also edible on a nasturtium plant. The flowers look gorgeous on salads in the summer but the leaves that stick around longer, I can imagine, would be delicious in salads too, peppery and sharp. Perhaps a nasturtium pesto….I think i’ll leave these to grow a little more before getting overexcited about crop.
