Edible Landscaping

March 13, 2013

I’ve been telling The Gardener for years that he should do this – become a backyard gardener consultant.

In the U.S. there are over 50,000 square miles of lawns, and we spend $30 billion a year landscaping those lawns.  At least that’s what John Robb says in his blog post What if farmers made house calls.  Robb mentions the idea of  farmers consulting with homeowners to create sustainable gardens in lieu of lawns.

I’m in favor.

    In my last garden dill was a self swoing weed . I constantly weeded it out of my beds. Well I left plenty too for eating. I was figuring I’d have to plant this year at the new house, but I mulched my garlic last year with compost from the old house. I’m already getting too much dill coming up in that bed. Hopefully both that dill and the ones I planted will be strong and I’ll get dill all over again.

      Wow! You’re just destined to be a dill farmer. Maybe you can share the harvest with family and friends or partner with a fish monger. Good luck!
