Camelina, also known under many other names such as gold-of-pleasure or false flax, was once grown to feed both humans and animals in Europe. This herbaceous annual has actually been used to produce fodder and oil for over 3000 years. It can also be used as green manure.
More and more, camelina is regaining popularity for various reasons. The oil produced from its seeds is rich in omega-3, making it a favorite in health stores. Its yellow flowers are great for pollinators. Its strong taproot is very helpful for working compacted soils.
On top of it all, you can use it to make a biodegradable broom!

The plant is very precocious and blooms early in May. It nourishes pollinators in times of scarcity. It is therefore an ally in the garden, both for bees and humans, who enjoy its smell.

Also called Gombo, this plant produces a fruit that can be eaten raw or cooked, with a taste somewhat similar to eggplant. Young leaves can replace spinach. In some countries, the mature seeds are roasted and used as coffee beans. A member of the hibiscus family (Okra latin name is Hibiscus esculentus), its flower is one of the most beautiful in the garden.
Originally from Africa, Okra entered Spain in the 8th Century with the moorish invasion. Later introduced in the United States by African slaves, it was considered for some time as poor people food. It is an essential ingredient in gumbo and is commonly used in Louisiana and Southern States cuisine.
