My plants, shrubs and trees are chosen as much for their functionality as for their colour and form. Many plants are trained to grow upward like peas and beans to save space. A well-designed POTAGER can provide berries, fruits and vegetables as well as cut flowers and herbs for the home during many months of the year. My favourites are the tomatoes and if you are interested you find a lot of tomatoes here, this year I grow a lot of heirlooms.
Today I harvest some lovely asparagus, parsley and chives for my lunch. I wish more people would grow their own food. They say you should buy local food well folks...it doesn't get more local than this. If you haven't tried it before I really can recommend you to put some seeds in the soil, nurse your plants and then later on get the joy of harvesting and eating your own food.
I wish you all a great Wednesday!
