Borage

Luckily I am one of the few with a valid reason to leave the house at the moment. Walking dogs is one of the few outsude-the-house activities currently permitted, and during our walk today I noticed the fields filling up with Borage.



Borage, also known as a starflower, is an annual herb in the flowering plant family Boraginacea and is native to the Mediterranean region, although also introduced to the UK some years ago.


Its flowers and leaves, as well as the oil from its seeds are used as medicine. ... it can be used for hormone problems, for adrenal insufficiency, for "blood purification," to increase urine flow, to prevent inflammation of the lungs, as a sedative, and to promote sweating.



The leaves can be used in salads and are said to have a taste like cucumber.
