Last August, I gave Paul James, the host of the HGTV show Gardening by the Yard, a tour of my garden and showed him how you can have a beautiful as well as edible landscape. The show (Episode 1906) will be airing on August 23rd at 7:30AM (PST/EST) on HGTV. Mark your calendar and set your DVR so you don’t miss it!
Prior to coming to my garden, the producer wanted to make sure I had enough edibles growing. So, I did a quick tally and here’s what I had (watch for them as Paul and I tour the garden):
* 8 different types of fruit
* 20 kindsof vegetables, including 15 varieties of peppers.. and
* 28 different herbs and seasonings
The picture below gives a little preview of what my front garden looked like. You can see the cherry tomatoes just ripening on the arbor over the front steps and my containers of figs, kumquats, and lemons–a welcoming edible landscape!
