I found a website that has many useful productive garden ideas.
Nasties are awesome! always love a new garden site and damn @chelloveck will you link us to the real site instead of pin or Facebook please?
20 Reasons to Grow this Amazing Herb -
Although the link is referenced inside the image in the OP, the link seems to be broken or the page could not be found on the site.
Here is the home page for the referenced site....15 Helpful Design Tips for Vertical Gardens - if you can't find the page regarding Nastutiums (the site has no search feature) there are a whole bunch of other useful articles to draw inspiration from.
I never knew that nasturtiums were good for anything other then making a plate look pretty. I knew the blossoms were edible but never realized they have medicinal uses.

The Various Health Benefits and Uses of Nasturtiums
Please remember- the seeds can be toxic.
They are also supposed to be a good insect repellent in the garden, I tried some last year, but they didn't grow any volunteers this year, unlike my marigolds...
I am unsure what a paw paw is. Animals?
I have never had marigolds grow volunteers. I was overrun with pansy volunteers, those seed spread all over the place. @azrancher did your nasturtiums grow easily? They say you don't need to really pamper or water.
Well the actually spread their seeds, I have a 20X20 garden that I didn't rototill this year and it is over run with marigold and volunteer tobacco plants. Very pretty actually.
