I just read this article and had no idea what we missed last year when our borage froze before it flowered:

Beautiful. Traditional. Functional. Therapeutic. What am I talking about you say? Why borage of course!
Borage is a wonderful plant to have around the garden. Borage (Borago officinalis), also known as starflower, bee bush, bee bread, and bugloss, is a medicinal herb with edible leaves and flowers. In my garden, borage and sunflowers share the honor of being bee hot-spots.
Check out the article and great pictures, as well as the comments and warning that it's related to comfrey and should be consumed with caution.
I really hope our seedlings won't freeze in the greenhouse tonight, what a cold winter, down to 25 degrees already and it's not even 8 pm yet. Last night we went to 17 degrees.
