Calendula Flowers

We are box 18. This year, we grew only zucchini and, around the box edges, calendula flowers for medicinal use.

Calendula may not be familiar to folks. I use the petals and flowers in salads, freeze the flowers in ice cubes, and dry some for calendula tea…and it’s all organic, thanks to the fine folks that made the garden boxes.

After September 1, the remaining contents of our box are free for the taking. And thanks to our boxmate for watering when we’ve been absent 🙂
