After reading lots of articles about how growing veggies will get kids more interested in eating them, I can finally report that yes, it's true! This lettuce is growing right beside the patio and my kids like to walk over and yank off leaves to munch on while they're playing in the backyard. I wouldn't believe it myself if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes!!
After blogging about how borage flowers are edible, I decided to give them a try. I wouldn't say they taste like cucumber, but they do have a pleasant, very mild flavour. I still think they're nicer in the garden, though.
