I ordered flax to grow this season in my herb garden, so your artical comes in perfect time. Thank you for this info, very interesting.
And plus I didn't know about the eggs and flax seed. I will be feeding my chickens Flax seed , altho the free range egg layers are better then store bought, w/ flax seed they will be even more healthier.
A very nice article and pictures. Very informative. DH and I use flax meal in our oatmeal, and flax oil on our salads. I like the viscosity of flax oil. It mixes so nicely with vinegar. I grew sesame and collected the seed for our culinary use, but the flowers (white) are not nearly as pretty as those of the flax. I hope to try growing it in my new garden here in VA.
Wow, will be printing out that recipe. WE are huge salmon fans, and can't resist cream chesse when someone twists our arm. I keep organic flax seed and flax oil on hand. We use the oil, the chickens get the seeds in their special treats now and then. Wish i could send you our eggs!
