Orange nasturtiums and purple basil July 29, 2011 by Andrea Bellamy 3 Comments If there’s an upside to accidentally ripping out an entire climbing nasturtium, it’s that you’ll have a beautiful salad that night. A peppery, colourful, beautiful salad. Related posts: Now Harvesting: mid-October Now Harvesting: Early June Most awesome plant label ever
You could make some delicious vinegar with it too: http://small-measure.blogspot.com/2011/08/guest-post-seattle-seedling.html It’d probably get infested with aphids soon anyway. Mine always do. :)

Love the colors! I always like to throw a handful of nast’s in a salad for dinner guests .. kinda freaks them out if they’ve not eaten them before. The vinegar sounds intriguing, I’ll have to see how many blooms are left!

Thanks, Tom! I loved the orange-purple combo, too. My mom always told me they were garish together, but I love ’em!
