Peltate, on the Window Sill

Nasturtium's peltate leaves on windowsill, Brooklyn

Joe's nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus) seedlings on the windowsill. Peltate leaves with a peppery taste. Sometimes a botanical term is easy to remember when you have a clear picture in your mind of a plant.

Nasturtium seedling, Brooklyn

Nasturtium. Trap crop for aphids, garden flower or salad garnish? All three in Joe's garden at Floyd Bennett Field.
