Did you know...?
Nasturtium plants grow very well in poor soils. They prefer dry, sandy soils versus potting soil that has fertilizer and plant food. Fertilizer causes them to put out more foliage and less flowers.
Nasturtium plants were discovered in the jungles of Peru and Mexico in the 16th century.
Nasturtiums are completely edible! They make an attractive and nutritious addition to salads, and they make a beautiful garnish. Nasturtiums have 10 times the vitamin C of lettuce, so add a gererous portion of leaves and flowers to your salad mixes.
I didn't have to go to work today (comp for working Saturday), so I was a true household diva all day... I dusted, cleaned, washed, vacuumed, flipped, loaded, boxed, filled, folded, and EVERYTHING. My house is super clean. And then I still had daylight left to go out and seed my window planters. I am sooo excited, I'm sure you can tell.
