These observations are of cultivated plants in a private garden.

All pictures were taken by Stephen Barstow, mostly in his garden known as The Edible Garden at 63.4N in Norway. NB! The vast majority but not all plants are edible (some are poisonous, included to demonstrate confusion species to edible plants). The garden is currently (2021) part of KVANN’s (Norwegian Seed Savers) Schubelers Network (https://kvann.no/schubeler) and is a Permaculture Land Centre (http://www.permakultur.no/land). Stephen blogs and writes about many of the plants at https://edimentals.com.
