Borage is an herb that originated in the middle east.

It produces leaves and flowers that are both edible.

Used as a companion to tomatoes, it is reported to confuse the moth, hawkmoth or Manduca, that lays eggs those tomato hornworms. The moth lays it's eggs in the wrong place and destruction of the tomato plant is greatly reduced.

We have a jump on the season here with these. Furry leaves, blue flowers, we will be keeping these around as our tomatoes go in the ground.
