It's never too soon to get the pretty new calendula flowers infusing in the olive oil. We experimented with two beds this year to see if we could get an earlier harvest. #1 is a total reseed bed. They just planted themselves. #2 is a bed that we planted early in March. It seems that it didn't make much difference other than the reseed bed (planting itself thickly) has quite a few more flowers to harvest this week than bed #2. Otherwise they bloomed simultaneously.
Beauties, aren't they?
