Today is Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day in the gardening world, hosted by May Dreams Gardens. Anyone with a gardening blog can link in with a post about what's blooming in their garden, and today that includes Grow It Eat It. But we're all about vegetables, you say. Well, vegetables have flowers too, and it's also great to have non-vegetable (though sometimes edible) flowers in the vegetable garden, to attract pollinators and other beneficial insects.
