Edible Plants

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

I was fortunate to attend a presentation on Edible Wild Plants of the Northeast. Not that I will be foraging for food anytime soon, but it is nice to know that there are options.

Our landscaping is in transition and I would like to focus on edible landscaping. Yes it is a bit late to be planning a garden, but I do have some things already in place. A bit more research and planning is needed before I can proceed.

Changes are afoot and it would be wonderful to supplement my diet with foodstuffs from my yard. :)

    I would encourage you to give it a start this year anyway; perhaps some container gardening. I love that my chives (perennial) are back and I'm already cutting them. I have a couple of old whiskey barrels that I use for shallow planting - planted my lettuce and cinlanto. Can't believe how much I like stepping out and cutting my our mesclun. emoticon

    Enjoy! That's what I'm looking forward to the most . . . my first tomato sandwich! Well, it's really 2 tomato slices with some mustard and pepper with a thin slice of vidalia onion inbetween the tomato slices. Heavenly! Used to put it on bread, but not so much bread in my life anymore. That's ok . . . love the tomatoes any way I can get 'em!

    HUGS and good luck.

    What a great idea -- nothing tastes better than a tomato from the garden warm with the sun! I did a lot of gardening during my years home with the kids.

    Wonderful idea!

    We have chives and mint....the easy ones!

    What a fun lecture to listen to. We're slowly transitioning to that, too. Strawberries in the flower garden this year. We'll see who's right about the dog taking too much interest in them there (let's just say I'm counting on the farmer's market...)

    I think I will look into this more for my area as well. I live in the southwest but I am sure there are edible plants in every region

    Sounds very interesting. I have been spending a lot of time the past couple of months on an organic garden, and I'm always looking for inventive places for planting edible plants. It's been a lot of fun so far. Happy landscaping! emoticon

    That is a great idea. I follow mostly a plant based diet. We are moving soon so it is too late for me to plant this year but hopefully at the new location next year.
