Nasturtiums in the Garden

I have to say, nasturtiums are a personal favorite with their circular lily pad leaves.  This year’s blooms are almost neon!  Best grown by seed, they like full sun and average dry soil;  they can clump, trail, or vine dependent on the variety you plant;  and they’re edible with a great peppery taste.  If you’ve got a black aphid problem, putting a few nasturtium in the garden will attract the pests.  You can pull out the plant, aphids and all, and dispose of them both. 


Nasturtium Vinegar

  • 1 cup leaves and flowers
  • 1 pint white wine vinegar

Make sure the greens/flowers are completely covered and let sit for 3 weeks.  Add chives and peppercorns for a more robust flavor.
