Borage, also known as starflower, is a mediterranean herb that has been in use for several thousand years. It is generally grown commercially for its medicinal seed oil, but the leaves add a great, healthy addition to a summer salad. The leaves have a distinct cucumber tastes, either fresh or dried. The flowers are edible too.
Although considered to be an herb, Borage is often grown in vegetable gardens to attract pollinating insects; It is considered to be a good companion plant for tomatoes, squash and strawberries.
I have also noticed that Borage is widely used to flavor pickles in Poland, and is used in sauces in the Rhine region of Germany.

I forgot that I had used the dirt to plant these seeds and used it to repot another plant....still got a sprout within a week of planting, with it being buried! Very fast shipping, even with a holiday! Will definitely be purchasing from this seller again.
