Nasturtiums in my Garden

I sowed nasturtium seeds in a large outdoor planter this year and I am really enjoying them. The edible flowers are often described as "peppery" but mine are easily as strong as horseradish.  Wow, talk about clearing your sinuses. I love the lilypad leaves too. I am going to save the seeds for planting next year. They are such cheerful flowers! Enjoy your Sunday. xo

I love seeing what's in your garden. I've always had a soft spot for nasturtiums. Somehow I think of them as cheerful, happy little flowers. Brings back happy gardening memories of long ago.

Have been a couple of days behind on your posts, Rosemary. Love your little bird from Friday. Nature is so amazing.

La Table De Nana -- I have heard that too. I will be saving my seed pods to dry up on the vine for planting next year. I guess I have to stop dead heading soon so the spent blossoms can go to seed. I have one or two giant seed pods that have formed already. Thanks for the information. My edible blossoms are beyond peppery. They are more like horseradish and will clear your sinuses and practically blow your head off.
