Edamame vs. the Sago Palm

The choice is pretty easy, if you ask me.  I hate sago palms!

Edible landscaping can look just as pretty as decorative shrubs with the additional benefit of yielding several pounds of fresh edamame for my girls.  The soil was improved, too, thanks to the beans fixing nitrogen in the roots.  I just added pepper plants to follow the beans, I’ll mulch them to cover the dirt, and next we’ll see a flourish of beautiful  red, yellow, orange, and green sweet peppers!

I think this picture says it all!  Edible landscaping for the win!


The Driveway Strawberry Patch

Edible landscaping is the way to go. I turned a patch of full sun nothing alongside the driveway into a strawberry patch. Not only does it look great, but my girls get organic strawberries all summer long!
