I have had so much fun watching this Turmeric root grow into such a beautiful plant. I purchased a small piece of Turmeric root at the Raleigh Farmer's Market a few months back and placed it in a glass of water in my kitchen window until it had little green buds on the top of it. Once the buds appeared I placed it into a pot of soil and set it in full sun. I am amazed at how fast it has grown and also how large and beautiful it is. It is definitely an easy cheap plant to grow and once summer ends I should have a large amount of Turmeric root to harvest and have for my green juice this winter.

Day lilies can be used in different ways, such as in salads, or filled with a delicate cream cheese mixture to serve & eat.

These are totally yummy & so much fun to teach your children that certain flowers are used for many things. If your child has allergies, or asthma or hayfever though, I would not recommend eating any type of flower blooms .

Dandelions are used for many things, such as dandelion tea, dandelion greens (which I love) & you can also dip the flowers into a tempura batter & deep fry, which are awesome!!

Who wouldn't think Snap dragon flowers aren't just beautiful in the summertime. They are always so bright and cheery & another of my favorites. Snap dragon blooms are also edible. You can add then to your salads for a beautiful color. Make sure that any flowers you plant to eat have not been sprayed with pesticides . If you have hay fever, or allergies you may also not want to eat flower blooms.
