“Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.” – Confucius

Swiss Chard

When most people think about vegetable gardens, usually the word ‘beautiful’ isn’t one of the first words that come to mind. This season as each day has gone by, I’ve watched my garden come to life. Sometimes it just leaves me breathless. When I walk back into the house after spending some time out there, sometimes I look at my husband and all I can say is

“I have a beautiful garden” 

Now, I know I’m a little (or a lot) biased because it’s kind of my baby but I think the foliage and blooms on some edible plants are just as lovely as some of the ornamental plants we regularly use if not more so.

So, I’ve been thinking about edible landscaping a lot lately. So many ideas have been swirling around in my head.

I’m feeling inspired, to create a beautiful edible landscaping design. If I can come up with one, I’ll share it with you
