Edible Flowers

© EunYoung Sebazco


I am a big city girl. I have never had own vegetable garden. well..tell the true. I wasn’t interested in growing any own vegetables. However, a garden where we created few years ago at my work place shakes me up. tomatoes, eggplants, papers, chards, cucumbers, carrots…wow.. I have been so much fun time at the vegetable garden past years. Last year, I collected many seeds not only perennials but also vegetables. And also, my grandma who has been teaching me a lots about vegetable garden gave me some seeds from her garden. I notice that she gave me Nasturtium seeds. I planted them but I never thought about harvesting seeds. Seeds are also edible? I love Nasturtium’s flower. It has fresh spicy radish flavor. I can’t wait for spring. Here, I find out what plants we can eat flowers part. Don’ be afraid, just try them. Wash them well.. BUT, Do not eat flowers from florists, nurseries or garden centers. These flowers have been treated with pesticides.
