Queen of the garden even in November is the ,,Tropaeolum majus” or garden nasturtium. They seem to produce the same oil as the watercress and therefor share the name of Nasturtium, although it is a complete other family. In our garden it can flower untill December and the first strong frost. On the photo the orange is even stronger because of the fallen citrus yellow leaves of my neighbour’s Ginkgo biloba. An experiment we still have to undertake is conserving the green Tropaeolum-seeds on vinegar. They seem to have the same taste of capers and could be mixed in salads.
Other eyecatcher this month the sage in our herbs garden: still strong of taste and with beautiful silvergreen dewed leaves.
