I've added quite a few new plants to my edible landscape this year, including flowers, vegetables, herbs, and berries. I like to take photos of my plants in all stages of their growth. I find this especially helpful when they are seedlings and I'm trying to weed! It's interesting to see how the garden changes over time and how the weather can either speed up or slow down growth from year to year.
Here are the new additions to my edible landscape this year.
Trionfo Violetto. This heirloom pole bean has purple flowers and pods.
Scarlet Emperor. This heirloom pole bean has red flowers.
Caraflex cabbage. This cabbage will eventually have a triangular head, poor thing.
Little Gem is a mini romaine lettuce.
Alexandria Alpine Strawberry. I've planted many of these along the front wall to help with my soil erosion problem.
Half bush Blueberry, Top Hat . I needed to add more blueberries to aid pollination.
Jelly Bean Blueberry.
Heirloom Lemon Drop Marigold with edible flowers.
Heirloom Lemon/Tangerine Gems Marigold, flowers are also edible.
African Daisy,Cape Marigold.
Heirloom Borage, with blue, star-like edible flowers.
Galaxy Mix Sweet Peas.
Edible Violas, which I paired in containers with Bright Lights Swiss Chard.
