Wednesday wonder

I woke up this morning to discover a little Wednesday wonder!

Growing among my Merlot lettuce seedlings was a volunteer Borage plant. There is nothing like getting a little surprise in your garden each year and just maybe with a little luck I will get another volunteer popping its head out to say hello.

*Just a quick note Borage is known as a starflower and both the leaves and flowers are edible. It is also a great plant to attract bees to your garden as they simply love it.

I enjoy using the flowers myself in a summer salad as it adds a faint taste of cucumbers to the mix.
