Borage (Borago officinalis)
Borage has large fuzzy green leaves and pretty blue flowers. Bees love it! Right now borage is sprawling all over the
place here in the southern rockies at 7500 ft. I did a little research to learn more about this awesome plant, and was
just blown away.
It is high in vitamin c, vitamin a, antioxidants, also many other vitamins and minerals.
I add the tender new leaves and flowers to my salad every day. Have heard that you can also use them in recipes the same
way you would use spinach.
This winter when things are slow I plant to do more extensive research on this plant. I really like to look into the
plants that do well where I live.
