There is something so fancy and so fun about eating flowers! Like intricate cake icing or ice cream sprinkles, we all get a rush of delight when we discover that something decorative is also delicious. Whether strewn across salads, tossed in stir fries, preserved in oils or cordials, or candied for dessert decorations, edible flowers elevate any meal and deserve a place in your backyard garden.
Indoor gardening can be the perfect pick-me-up at any time of year but they are particularly comforting when it is cold outside and your backyard garden has gone dormant. Without much effort, windowsill plantings can provide bursts of freshness to your cooking, bright pops of color on cold days, and a cheerful reminder that you will be back out playing in the soil sooner than you think!
