Look for me at plantersplace.com. I will be writing a regular blog on kitchen gardens. We’ll cover everything from design, history, recommended varieties, attracting beneficials and what to have for dinner. My design practice stems from the way I seek to live… connected to the earth and seasons by growing some of my own herbs, vegetables and flowers.
Creating an edible garden that is beautiful as well as functional is a design issue. It requires solving problems that may be unique to every site. There are shared problems as well. Where should you plant your kitchen garden? How do you create enclosure? What about winter- what will the garden look like then? Where do I hide the compost and work area? How do I attract birds and butterflies to the garden? What if I have no time? What if I have no space?
Let me know the questions you have and I will address them here or there. I would love to see photos of your successes too. Happy gardening.
