Landscape with Edibles & Enjoy!

There’s an awesome new trend popping up more and more in urban settings across the country. That is, landscaping your home with edibles. Forget plants that suck up all your water (and time!) with no kickback. Invest in a mutually beneficial ‘partnership’ with nature, as well as a landscape design that’s both visually attractive and functional! 🙂

For anyone looking to grow food in a sustainable manner, the goal of Edible Earth Resources is twofold: food production while simultaneously increasing the beauty of your living space. The vast majority of landscapes they install are edible…between 90-100%! Their growing methods will also improve the drainage of your soil, grow produce with higher nutritional value AND reduce the amount of residual pesticides in your food and on your property.

I imagine there’s no satisfaction quite like cooking with the yield of your own harvest. These are fruits, vegetables, berries and herbs that can be grown year-round, plucked from the garden straight to your plate!

The bulbs on Finocchio Fennel, for example, are used to make various sauces and soups such as our Roasted Fennel and Potato Soup

, while its leaves are saved for flavoring those same dishes.

Play around with the following recipes that could benefit from such an eco-friendly endeavor…
