Hiding Food in the Front Yard
2. Choose ornamental-looking edibles
Corn is always corn. Tomato bushes are always tomato bushes. But, greens, some herbs, and bush beans can be interspersed in borders and look like they belong there. Squash and cucumbers and sweet potatoes make great annual ground cover. Strawberries make a great evergreen ground cover.
3. Get rid of a few inedibles
Maybe those extra dwarf nandinas can vacate and leave room for sage and kale? Plants are meant to be pretty, but they also are meant to feed us. And in the suburban environment where space is at a premium, switching inedibles for more delicious plants is a great way to increase our gardening space.
