This is my last post from Amsterdam for a little while. If you see any herbs in the city, which you would like to photograph and email to me, then please feel free to do so. I’d really like to keep this project alive whilst I’m away – to show that there really are edible and medicinal herbs growing in cities like Amsterdam, every day of the year.
Here is a young Hollyhock plant, spring up most likely from seeds shred from nearby plants.
Here is Hairy bitter cress, it makes a tasty peppery addition to winter salads or is very nutritious when lightly cooked a leafy vegetable.
