Have you ever wanted to grow your own kale, prepare your favorite home cooked meal with fresh herbs or even pick your own berries in the comfort of your own backyard? If so, you’re in luck – because you can’t get produce like this in the grocery store. You don’t even have to sacrifice your neatly maintained landscaping to grow your own garden.
Adding fruits and vegetables to your yard appeals to all five senses and your healthy lifestyle. So, let’s spice up your landscaping decor with some tasty options for your dinner table. These plants add visual beauty and taste great, too.
Warm Season Crops – Warm season crops are plants that have adapted to warmer climates and are very sensitive to frosts. (igrow.org)
Tomato, Squash, Lima Beans, Spinach, Sweet Corn, Watermelon, Sweet Potato, Okra, Zucchini, Peppers, Basil and Eggplant
Cool Season Crops – plants that have adapted to cool climates. Most cool season crops prefer temperatures below 70°. When the temperature starts to climb over their comfort zone in the spring or early summer they tend to bolt, which means they produce a seed stalk. (igrow.org)

We think you’ll love veggies in a whole new way – as both food and landscape design elements.
