I love edible gardens! I’ve been reading Edible Landscaping: Now You Can Have Your Gorgeous Garden and Eat It Too! lately and I got to thinking…There are so many beautiful plants in edible landscaping!
This had to be the prettiest lettuce mix I’ve ever grown. The seeds are from Renee’s Garden. All of her lettuce mixes are fun to grow, and I like their seed packs in general because they give you a lot of varieties in each. They’re really good for small gardens.
I’m kind of obsessed with these Asian greens called Hon Tsai Tai. I love that they’re purple. I love the flavor (earthy, kind of similar to asparagus). And I love the florets. I do have a problem with keeping the bugs from eating them before I can…But who can blame them?
Fall is the perfect time to plant strawberries. You’ll get a small harvest in December and then a bigger one in the spring. Strawberries are a perennial, but it can be hard for them to survive our summers. If you do get them to survive the next harvests will be much more exciting.
Rainbow chard has to be one of the most vibrant plants in my edible gardens. I’ve even seen people use it as a decorative plant in annual flower beds.
Attract bees and butterflies with your herb garden.
Okra has to have the most beautiful flowers! Almost like hibiscus…
Maybe it’s just pretty because I love cucumbers so much!
Of course, what garden would be complete without tomatoes?
