Sample text

I could go on (and I do later in the book) about all the beauty that you can find in common edible plants. Start Small, but Have a Plan When you’re starting, it helps to have a plan to create your foodscape. My mantra throughout this book is to start small, plant the right plant in the right place, and grow what you like to eat. While much of the combining, mixing, and matching of plants might require a little research, some of it has to do with personal taste too. Maybe you love calendula, but not pansies, eggplant, or peppers.

Peaches, dwarf apples, and plums grow shorter and wider, while pears grow more upright. In a small space, you might not have the width to grow most fruit trees, but you can grow them up as much as you like. Pears, due to their vertical growth habitat, may work well for you. The idea of vertical gardening is great to keep in mind when you garden in a small space. I visited a garden in Montreal, Quebec, and saw how a resident trellised pole beans on a twine up a fire escape using this vertical element to produce food.

Not only does this help fit edible plants more easily in your yard, it also allows you to keep and improve the beauty, style, and design of your landscape. I’m always amazed at the places gardeners find to plant edibles. The keys to growing them successfully, which we’ll cover later in this book, include sun, soil, and location. By thinking creatively, you can grow vegetables on a fire escape, fruits in a container, and edible flowers up a wall. This section is all about the possibilities. I want to show you where in your yard edible plants can grow.
