Borago officinalis or "Starflower" is an herb that can be use in a few different ways. Traditionally cultivated for medicinal or culinary uses, it now is used for make oilseed as well. Here at SVF we plan on harvesting it for Chuck and Augies (...and ourselves) as a beautiful, edible, flavorful (cucumber like taste) garnish. Indulging in the flowers was so new to me! It's like flower-candy.
Getting my first taste on camera:

Younger flowers appear pinker, like this one.
Always something new at the farm to make you appreciate the small things...
Try planting it at home for a guaranteed, "oooooh ahhhhh!"
