The Goodness of Vegetables

Leave a comment



I’ve been busy over the past few months and hadn’t got around to pulling out the old winter vegetables and planting summer vegetables.

This tardiness resulted in some unexpected additions to my garden.

A few winter vegetables began to flower and some very pretty blooms popped up.

The prettiest were the carrots whose flowers resembled the delicate heads of the popular garden plant ‘Queen Anne’s Lace.’

‘Queen Anne’s Lace’ is actually member of the carrot family and is sometimes called ‘Wild Carrot,’ this is why it looks similar to my carrot flower.

This week the winter vegetables have finally been pulled out and summer ones planted.

Before pulling the carrots out I cut their flowers and created a floral arrangement for my dining room.

I couldn’t waste such beautiful blooms, even if they do belong to carrots.

Cut flowers, that’s an unexpected benefit of growing vegetables-they really are plants with prodigious goodness.
