How possible would it be to send a photo? Could it be a sort of salvia?

The 2nd two are borage, which is edible. You can put the flowers in water in ice cube trays and have pretty ice cubes. I'm afraid the first two are a bit too blury for me to see properly.

How come when we went to Cornwall 2 years ago in June it was cool and it rained? Not rain every day though, but we took a little boat from Dartmouth to Totnes and it absolutely tipped! All the same it was one of my favourite holidays, saw 9 gardens!

For blanching times I use a book from the Reader's Digest, "Food From Your Garden" that I've had for over 40 years, it always works perfectly. The enzymes that spoil frozen food should be destroyed without over blanching. I use it for making jams and jellies as well.

You pick by hand as you need it. Pick off the top when it looks as though it's growing too much up to make it bushier and stop it growing flowers.

Lovely photos Mrs. G. There is a thread especially for photos of our gardens, but it's disappearing behind the other posts. We need to post on it to keep it up there.
