We love plants that are hardy to our area.
We've begun rethinking the term "weeds" and instead thinking more of them as "super survivors" (and seeing what uses we can find for those wonder plants that weather such extremes with such grace!).
We've tended to lean away from anything that needs too much babying, and our amateurish efforts have necessitated that Benign Neglect is more of our "gardening style." There ARE plants that do thrive that way.
We love multi-use plants.
We love edible landscaping (and about any edible plants of any kind!)
And we LOVE perennials!
As part of our celebration of having the blog going for five years now, for God's miracle of expediting our getting out of debt recently, and of THANKS to you for your friendship across all boundaries, this book Perennial Vegetables by Eric Toensmeier is our next giveaway prize! In it you'll find some great resources and information about edible perennials....
To enter this giveaway, just leave a comment and mention your go-to favorite edible plant...that's it! The drawing will be on Sunday sometime.
And now we go to eat our first loquats Jack picked today, another edible landscaping plant...delicious!!
