Happy Humming Borage

Four years ago, I bought one borage plant and slipped it into the Victory Garden.  It proceeded to tip over and die and I shrugged at its loss.  But then, the following season it returned and was beautiful.  So, I allowed it a place in the garden. 

This year, the borage has developed world domination issues.  It’s over five feet tall and covered in blue blossoms that are humming with happy bees.  Yes, the garden is humming right now.  But, here’s the thing, borage leaves tastes like fishy cucumber to me and the flowers just taste like fish.  Yuck. 

I think it’s time to say good-bye.  What do you think?
