Seed Anticipation

Borage and The Bee

Borage from last year

I bought a crapton of seeds online (thanks, new job!) and am now impatiently waiting for them to arrive.

The one that gives me the most chuckles: I bought borage seeds, so I can plant it to attract bees to my tomato plants. Borage, the runner-up-scourge of my 2014 garden. I was pulling up borage seedlings for weeks. It doesn’t help that I don’t enjoy cucumbers in any form that’s not a Klaussen pickle (borage smells and tastes like fuzzy cucumbers). The previous owners told me it tastes good frozen in ice cubes destined for cocktails, but that sounds like something a gin-lover says.
