Wasted Spaces and Edible Landscaping

So our goal is to work towards creating an all edible landscaping in our yard.  This will be a long process but we are making little steps.  Here you can see a picture of our new herb garden.

Our new herb garden includes the following:

  • Horseradish
  • Pineapple Sage
  • Fennel
  • Lavender
  • Stevia Bush
  • Chives
  • Celeriac
  • White Sage
  • Rosemary
  • Green Sage
  • Sweet Marjoram
  • St. Johnswart
  • Chamomile
  • Catnip
  • Comfrey
  • Lemon Balm
Although the bushes/plants look small right now they will grow and become a lush edible herb garden.  Stayed tuned to see update photos.

What are you doing to make use of wasted spaces and grow more of the things your family loves and needs?

An Asparagus Adventure at Day Farms

There are so many amazing things located in your backyard if you are just looking.  Here is a farm I discovered while driving by this week.  It is called Day Farms and they offer some amazing produce.......and some that you get to pick yourself.  Here are a few pictures of my Asparagus Adventure.

Take advantage of these opportunities and produce that is located all around you.  By relying on local farmers we will not only enjoy amazing food but we will help our local economy. 

I will be posting pictures and a recipe about how I enjoyed this yummy asparagus :) 

If you are located in the Ogden/Layton area check out Day Farms at 2500 W. Gentile St.  and call 801-546-4316 to find out what they have to offer right now.
