Edible Landscaping: Where To Begin?

 I have a new booklet for you! "Edible Landscaping: Where To Begin?" answers just that question.

The most frequent question I get about edible landscaping is "where do I begin?". Over the years, I've written several articles on this subject, but I decided to publish them in one booklet so that everyone can benefit.

It's a short, informative, gentle, no-fluff read which will ease your mind, help build your courage, and give you the direction you need to begin.

Here are all the places you can get it!

Okay, so what have I done?

Since September, I've done exactly nothing on my garden.

I've been inside a lot, dealing with stuff and writing books. But what I would like to do is to collect up and put the 400+ pages of information from the Edible Landscape Design site into a format which will be helpful to you.

This will probably be in the form of free and paid courses, as I enjoy teaching as much as I do writing fiction. But if you have something else in mind, please feel free to comment below. :)

Changes

You might notice if you've been following me that the domain name has changed!

After eight years I've decided to close Edible Landscape Design, and this blog will take up the slack. It'll be much less cost and trouble, and those of you who have bought courses from me will still have somewhere to visit.

I'm looking forward to the future.

Spring is here early this year

Today is warm and sunny, so I thought I might show off my front yard gardens.

Spring seems to have come early this year. We have had a very mild, dry winter, although it did rain a few days ago.


Lots of plants have arrived ...



... and a few never left!

Rosemary

Parsley

Red mustard

Red kale

"Peacock" kale

Strawberry plant

All these plants are edible.

I hope you've enjoyed the walk through my garden! How is your garden doing?

My December garden

We've had a bit of wet and frosty weather lately here in central Oklahoma (US) but this morning is beautiful and I wanted to show some photos of the garden.

One of the things I did over the summer was to block off an area around my Bradford pear to create a partial shade garden. I've scattered quite a few different sorts of seeds here and the parsley seems to be loving it here.


Parsley makes a nice ground cover, although some people think it looks a bit weedy when it flowers. But all parts are edible, and the flower stalks are easy enough to remove if you decide you don't like the look of them. The flowers make a nice addition to floral arrangements.

On the other side of the yard, over by my front porch pond's waterfall, the mint is still going strong after two hard freezes:






Over in the bottom left is garlic, which stays green here all winter, even under snow.

The kale is having a great time through all this, and is one of the highlights of the front garden right now!







I love these colorful kale plants. They're really tasty too!

If you notice, there's a bit of lettuce starting up in that last photo.

Here are some other salad greens starting up too.


I scattered the same seeds all over both of these garden plots, and it's interesting to see where certain ones like to grow. For some reason, arugula likes the area by the rose bush and red yuccas, in the front of the garage. It's still blooming!


I wanted to also tell you some good news: I got an avocado seed to sprout! I have been trying to get one to sprout for several years now, so I'm really excited about this.






I'm pretty sure this wouldn't survive the winter outdoors, but so far it's a beautiful container plant! I plan to re-pot it and put it in the garage with my banana and pineapple plants to overwinter.

What's in the plans for next year? I'd like to do some cover cropping with clover in the front garden plots, and do more plantings in the back yard along the chain link fence. I have quite a bit of corn seed, and it might make a nice privacy screen for the summer. I also have some amaranth I'd like to plant and see how it does here.

How's your garden? You can share your photos here!

Our November ice storm

Well, we had an ice storm overnight (which is fairly unusual for November), and I wanted to show you my yard before it melted.










Hope all of you are having a great weekend!
