Beautiful rainbow chard, the vegetable that I cook with the most, I use it almost every single day and it just produces all year round in my climate. I have just sown another big tray of them with hints that these autumn sown ones will start to bolt soon. If you need some ideas of how to cook with rainbow chard or silverbeet check out my saved stories for dinner ideas, I have been sharing in my stories what I cook for my family every night for dinner. I have been absolutely blow away by how many people have messaged me about my meal ideas, I honestly just see my self as a basic home cook, who has to keep coming up with new ways to cook the same seasonal homegrown produce to keep it interesting, but all of your kind messages have made me very happy, so thank you. What vegetable do you use the most in your cooking?
Sun tea soon come. Perfect for those delicate, floral infusions. ☀️🌸💠 I sat my borage flowers in the sun for a few hours today. Please, always use glass, never plastic.This is the before photo. The result is a mild flavor that tastes similar to cucumber water. A childhood staple, without the Lipton tea bags I was raised on. 👀🤭 When's the last time you made sun tea? #sacredplate
Summer solstice lavender lemon shortbread cookies! I love a cookie that necessitates a nature walk. I found borage, chamomile, chickory, honeysuckle, red clover, daisies and milkweed flower. But by far the best cookies were the mugwort leaf. They were surprisingly delicious and felt like a suiting witchly celebration of the solstice.

Borage and blue sky. Borago officinalis (Borage) is said to be the herb of courage, capable of driving away all sadness. Whilst we eat the flowers and the mere sight of the plant indeed gladdens our heart, its main role in our garden is to provide a late winter food source for our local bees.💙🐝💙 #borage#forthebees#beefood
“Foraging isn’t just for hipsters, hippies, and hip cuisine. It is basic human knowledge that we’ve lost. It is utilizing free food grown from free solar and water. It is eating a healthier and more diverse diet. It is appreciating the ordinary beauty all around us. It is exercise and exposure to the natural world which are powerful antidepressants. It is a reason to use fewer herbicides. It is a reason to leave spaces wild and biodiverse. This isn’t a fad, it’s a smart way to eat, to live, and to use land.” - @morchellawildfoods #wildfoodlove#foragingpsa#natureappreciation#fooddiversity#protectwildplaces#seethebeautyaroundyou
Borage flower sun tea. Borage is said to help boost your immune system and reduce inflammation. It has a light cucumber flavor and when made into a tea, it's super refreshing. Add a few sprigs of mint and you have a great summer drink! #instagood

Which one’s your favorite? 🤔🍅 These are four different varieties grown every year here @carmelbellafarm ... each unique and beautiful in their own way 😌✨🌈. In the tomato garden, you will find these gems surrounded by towering borage, lush purple basil, flowering African marigolds, and a carpet of sweet alyssum. One of my most beloved companions of the four listed is the beautiful star shaped, blue blossomed borage (Swipe to see). It compliments these anthocyanin varieties in such a stunning way. Not only is it attractive to the human eye but also every pollinator in town 👏🏼. It is believed to repel the Tomato hornworm 🐛- one of the arch nemesis that seeks to devour our precious love apple fruits.... and in my experience has proven to do a great job at that. Borage is a vigorous plant and self seeder and can be classified as invasive if not monitored carefully, so deadheading them regularly is recommended. They become quite large offering a bit of filtered shade to lower, exposed fruits while simultaneously adding trace nutrients back into the soil, contributing to stronger surrounding plants and is said to enhance the flavor of the nearby tomatoes. The entire plant is edible and used in many healing ways 🙏🏼. The flowers are a delicious treat offering the pallet a slightly sweet, cucumber flavor that my children adore ... they also look insanely gorgeous when frozen in globe shaped ice cubes to float in drinks for guests, super tasty in salads and beautiful as garnishes for sweet and savory dishes. The plant is often used in soups and the seeds often turned into oil. Borage is very quick and easy to germinate so if you haven’t started any this spring there’s still time 😊! Are you a lover of this herbaceous flower? If you’d like to know more about the tomato varieties shown above, just comment below and I’ll be sure to respond... Happy Friday! 🎉🍅✨ Sponsored by our wonderful friends over @kellogggarden - helping to
The beautiful edible stars of borage flowers....... supplying me with the fresh cucumber flavour I miss so much while I wait for the weather to warm up enough to grow cucumbers again. What is your favourite way to use edible flowers? I am going to add these in to a yummy yoghurt raita to go with our curry for dinner tonight.
"The leaves and floures of Borrage put into wine make men and women glad and merry, driving away all sadnesse, dulnesse, and melancholy, as Dioscorides and Pliny affirme. Syrrup made of the floures of Borrage comforteth the heart, purgeth melancholy, and quieteth the phrenticke or lunaticke person." John Gerard - 'The Herball, or General Historie of Plantes' (1597). 💙🐝💙 #borage#inmygardentoday#edibleflowers#edibleflower#forthebees#medicinalherbs
