Edible Flowers

This year Steve and I are starting for the first time an edible flower garden. I have grown beautiful huge roses in the past. The horses loved to eat them. They are very high in vitamin C.

This year we have included Calendulas,Carnations, Day Lilies, Gladiolus and Bachelors Buttons. All Edible!!!!!!!!

They make a great topping for a desert or salad!
