can you eat it?
steve planted borage just outside our front door this year, as part of his ongoing campaign to convert as much of our two acres of woods as possible into a “food forest.” i was skeptical (that’s sort of my role) of his enthusiastic purchase of three borage plants, which we have never planted before, but lordy, when they bloomed, i was in all the way. the whole plant is edible, including these gorgeous flowers, which steve tells me will be featured soon on one of our dinner salads. ok, hon. i’m here for it.
