There is a wonderful plant called sheep sorrel that should be included in the herb family if it is not. It tastes like mustard when the leaves are young and tender. If you ate these greens alone, you wouldn't even need a dressing - that's how strong the mustard flavor is. The young leaves are so tasty!I'd like to start a salad wall in my garden, and I was hoping someone could give me some advice as to what herbs would go nicely in it!
The freshly picked dandelion leaves are wonderful! Also throw in a couple freshly bloomed dandelion flowers! They are sweet!I'm looking forward to trying dandelion greens in the salad this year.
Be sure to try the flowers too! Get them when they first bloom! So sweet and yummy!I'm looking forward to trying dandelion greens in the salad this year.
love these also in salads. have discovered the cream colored flowers taste more mild than the deep red once. also the leaves attached.nasturiums are great - peppery flavor and leaves and flowers edible.
Cover with at least 2 layers of Nsulate all the way to the ground. 23F is pretty cold but if it lasts more than 3 or 4 hours there isn't much hope. Sounds like he has the wrong varieties planted, one's with low chill hours.My neighbor has some wild plums and peach trees that are blooming like crazy but 23f is coming. What should he do to help them?
We have been seeing 80f and sunny so everything has tried to get started.Cover with at least 2 layers of Nsulate all the way to the ground. 23F is pretty cold but if it lasts more than 3 or 4 hours there isn't much hope. Sounds like he has the wrong varieties planted, one's with low chill hours.

Haha touche'! It was an emergency! Pineapple Sage I hope! Is Shepard's Purse a green or a herb for culinary purposes? I was noodling around the recipe links for steamed dumplings and found it used in Asian dishes.Peach (Prunus persica cvs.) blossoms might survive at 23º F. It is for is borderline, but some may pull through, especially those already pollinated or still only in bud. Wild plums could be one of several different things, but if anything they may be a bit hardier than a peach.
Now, if your neighbor does end up with a crop of peach and plums, what herb will he or she use to flavour any resulting fruit salad?
