Alyssum flowers are blossoming outside our greenhouse. These pretty little flowers are food for caterpillars.
The day lilies throughout the museum gardens are blooming, too. Did you know that these plants are edible? The flower petals are crunchy like lettuce when eaten raw, but you can also find recipes for cooking the flowers. You can even make “pickles” from them!
The pumpkins were planted in the garden today! They are just baby plants right now, with the seed coats still on the leaves. Stop by throughout the summer to watch them grow!
The strawberry plants we showed you last week are really growing, too. Look at the little berry that is already growing. All of these strawberries sure will be tasty! Send us your yummy strawberry recipes to us so we know what to do with our harvest 🙂
