Borage is one of our favourite companion plants! Like comfrey it’s a dynamic accumulator, meaning that its long taproot draws nutrients from deep in soil where other plants can’t reach. It helps improve our soil plus the bees love it, and the flowers are edible! #cordovabaygolfcourse #golfcoursegardening #borage #companionplanting #beneficial #edibleflowers #veggiepatch #vegetablegarden
Nature is truly the most talented painter I know. The colour combination of borage and Yin Yang beans couldn't be any more perfect, and looking at it brightens up the miserable, gray and wet weather outside. . . . #yinyangbeans #pandabeans #seeds #savingseeds #borage #borageflowers #boragoofficinalis #edibleflower #edibleplant #medicinalplant #eatyourveggies #horticulture #garden #inmygarden #greenthumb #gardening #lovegardening #greenhouse #gardenlife #growyourown #growyourownfood #eatwhatyougrowandgrowwhatyoueat #allotment #allotmentuk #organicgardening #veggiegarden #veggarden #ediblegarden #thehappygardeninglife
Every flower was blessed by a blue banded bees buzz pollination before being delicately snipped into the bowl of rainwater 💙 Surrounded by pink kunzite's universal love and abundance while the sunshine imprinted the flowers high vibrational healing into the waters memory 💙 Borage flower essence is a part of the Divine Shadow Healing and the Divine Love & Protection Bee Priestess Essences 🙏🏼🌏💙
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.
Flowers add a touch of whimsy to culinary creations, and in some cases, even surprising herbal benefits! Even the tiny flowers of culinary plants in the mint family are edible. Basil, rosemary, lemon balm, and yes, mint flowers are delicate and flavorful addition to food. There are plenty of other delightful options to consider as well such as chives, scented geraniums, sunflowers, lilacs, yuccas, and so many more. 🌸  Here are some of our favorite flowers to use in cooking, but there are so many more to explore!

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.
Sharing some borage and rocket flowers with the bees for a morning tea of coconut cashew cheesecake.
Borage was a new addition to the garden this year. I loved the dainty flowers on the large, weedy-looking large plant. I had no idea how large this plant can get in such a short growing season, especially after three attempts of getting the seeds to properly germinate, and it will definitely get its own space next year instead of being squished next to the tomatoes. These edible little flowers will be missed as I pull the plants today (which means food for the chickens and compost). Till next year, borage! ✌️ #playingwithmud #nickistable . 🌱 🌱 🌱 🌱 #borage #edibleflowers #ediblegarden #gardentotable #kitchengarden #companionplanting #mygarden #homegrown #grownfromseed #growyourownfood #growwhatyoueat #growfoodnotlawns #growfood #gardenactivist #urbanorganicgardener #organicgarden #organicgardening #urbangarden #urbangardening #backyardgarden #backyardgardener #pnwgarden #pnwgardening #thehappygardenlife #gardenlove #gardenlife #gardening #gardener
"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

Late summer fairground: a Bee (or is it a Hoverfly?) takes a ride on a colorful Starflower. Borageflowers turn from pink to blue and to red - depending on the pH-value. For insects it‘s a traffic light, red means nothing left to collect. - #starflower #borage #borretsch #gurkenkraut #kukumerkraut  #hoverfly #schwebfliege #boragoofficinalis #syrphidae #fairground #latesummer #makro #macroshot #macrolover #insects #insectagram #macromania #macroworld #macrocaptures #herecomesthesun #bunt #colorful #michael_simosan #beautiful #summersun #garden #paradise #austria #österreich #mostviertel

Check out this monster Borage!!! 🤩🦖🧟‍♂️ Sadly, it is an ex-Borage now. Despite my best efforts to support it, it took a little tumble in the wind snapping it’s stem and taking out half of my Gladioli in the process! 🙈😅🥀 They seem to be getting picked on a lot around here! No fear though as they look like they will recover, especially now they can see the light! 😂 This monster however... 😵😞🙅🏼‍♀️. So I picked as many flowers as I could (and ate most of them 😂😋😍) and harvested as many seeds as I could for next year. I really love Borage, the flowers are delicious, the bees love them and they’re beautiful (if a little spiky!). This beast sprung up of its own volition in the middle of my cut flower bed, and what I’m holding here (without any exaggeration) is half of it. The other half had to be dug out 🙈😳😬. Next year I may be a little more choosy about where I let things spring up (especially since I now have the seeds! 😏😄🌱. . . . . . . . #feedmeseymour #gardengiant #borage #edibleflowers #mygardentoday #horticulture #permaculture #growyourown #allotmentgarden #kitchengarden #ediblegarden #growyourownfood #mybackyard #huerto #potager #jardin #jardim #gardenersofinstagram #beefriendly #ecofriendly #ecoliving #backyardgarden #allotmentuk #allotment #greenthumb #gardening

Borage is trying to take over my yard. I think every plant gives me about a hundred volunteers. It’s beautiful during the cool months and mostly burns up when it gets hot.
Why would anyone want to grow flowers in their allotment!? What an eyesore! And they’re edible! Such a waste of space 🤪😂😉 And to add insult to injury you have to share them with bees! 🐝🤣🙈. Just kidding, I am totally in love with my flower bed! 😍🌸💙. . . . . . #flowerpower #growyourown #vegetablegarden #allotment #allotmentuk #allotmentlife #flowers #flower #cornflower #borage #ediblegarden #kitchengarden #potager #gardening #garden #gardener #gardenlife #mygardentoday #mybackyard #beautiful #beefriendly #wildlifegarden #flowersofinstagram #instalove
Borage beautiful borage! 🌸💙💗 I love that these plants can have blue, pink and purple flowers all together in one branch. Borage springs up in epic proportions all over my patch and I really love them. They’re beautiful.... and tasty! This particular plant is over a meter tall and is only about a month old. 😳 It’s also covered in flowers, buds and most importantly, bees! 🌸🐝 It’s a bit of a bully, so make sure if you do grow it in your garden that it’s not going to outcompete something else you really like!  The plant itself has edible flowers, leaves and stems (when peeled). I’m told you can even make ale from it! I tend to just throw it in salads and drinks. Does anyone else make anything wacky from borage? 🍽🌸🍹. . . . . . . . . #borageflowers #borage #organicgarden #vegpatch #ediblegarden #eatwhatyougrow #growwhatyoueat #gardenactivist #allotmentgarden #allotmentuk #potager #kitchengarden #growsomethinggreen #growyourfood #growyourown #growsomething #growyourownfood #greenthumb #allotmentlife #beefriendly #mybackyard #mygarden #homesteading #tuin #permaculture #horticulture #harvest #vegetablegarden #edibleflowers
