Did you know orchids are edible?  Many of you have probably seen the sugared variety high atop a wedding cake or as a garnish, but they’re great in salads too.  The flavor is a bit like cucumber with the texture of a buttery lettuce and a touch of the bitter bite of endive.  Don’t eat orchids given to you as gifts.  If they weren’t grown by you, please be sure you only eat certified organic orchids.  The use of pesticides is prevalent in commercially farmed ornamental plants; so, be careful.  This next Call can center on orchids.  It is all up to you…

Check out this Call for Entries from Franklin Park Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and the Central Ohio Clay Arts (COCA) organization for De La Naturaleza, a contemporary ceramic art exhibition that celebrates the natural world.  Take a look…
