Nasturtiums



I love nasturtiums [pronounced nas-TER-shums].

I love the yellow ones and the orange ones and the dark dark red ones.   I like the regular leaves and the dark leaves and the spotty leaves.



I like them viney and I like them short.  I like them planted with sweet potato vines.


And they're good on salads.   They have a peppery zing, so be prepared.

Wash the leaves and flowers carefully and toss them on a sandwich.


Or mix up some cream cheese with enough sour cream or yogurt to make it easily spreadable and pipe it inside the flowers for a summer appetizer.

Mmmm.
