I enjoy growing dill and parsley. I don't eat them... I only grow them for the swallowtail caterpillars to eat.
Ooo are they easy to grow? I’m starting some in the spring this will be my first attempt. I’ll have to plant some extra for the butterflies I didn’t know they liked them!

They are easy to grow! I normally buy a couple from the greenhouses and then sprinkle seeds around those plants. They do great!

Yes, I would like to grow artichoke just for the flowers. Flowers for the bees. I might take up beekeeping. I also grow beans because they are super easy. It's cute to see the seedlings. I grow gourds because they are pretty. But not to eat.
