The little blue purple saucer flowers are flax. The stem is what linen is made from. Who came up with that? The small purple flowers are alfalfa. As the flower ages, the colour changes from vibrant purple to faded blue with a litlte purple, almost a lavender colour. The plant is very pretty and seeded itself from the hay that contained it. I will harvest it now, and use it for tea in the winter. The bunnies love it and it is high in protein and calcium. The goats and sheep love it too, and they are fed it during the winter but it gets in the fleece of the sheep very badly. The caldendula was here. There were hardly any flowers in the yard. I suppose the calendula surivived because it self seeds so well. There were no fruit trees or edible berries or bushes with fruits. That has all changed now. The legacy left for the next farmer will be quite bountiful.
The green seed heads are amaranth. It is a high protein grain that some countries use for making flour. I even have a tiny tomato or two! How can one not love summer? Ahhhhh!
