Join Seeds InService (Maggie Puckett and Melissa Potter) as we pickle nasturtium seeds from our gardens. Also called ‘poor man’s capers’ we’ve named our pickled seeds after Socialists, removing the classist, sexist connotation and emphasizing the importance of working class women and men. The pickled seeds contain vitamin C and were once used by sailors at sea to ward off scurvy. Nasturtium plants are great natural pest repellant for vegetable gardens. Their flowers, leaves, and seeds are all edible. The long mature vines can
also be made into paper.
