The Nasturtiums Bloomed

They're a scraggly lot and they've suffered in the dry heat oven, but they finally bloomed.

I planted these for extra-special salads, and I meant to garnish our salade necois with it on Sunday. . .

but the children were so excited that I told them to go ahead and eat a blossom.

Ben was not impressed.  Genevieve liked them a lot. 

Oddly, I cannot get these dang things to climb, so they sort of sprawl.  Next year I'm going to get bush variety and I'm going to plant them a lot closer together.  There will be big salads and lavish garnishing!
