Enjoying the Beauty of an Edible Garden

| 4/18/2019 2:00:00 PM

Before I met my husband, I didn’t know anything about gardening. I did not realize that edible gardens could be so beautiful. I have heard over the years about home owner associations banning people from having edible landscaping in their front yard. After having a garden of my own, this makes even less sense to me. 

Every year as we grow new things, I am blown away by all the pretty flowers that come from our fruits and vegetables. I just never realized this was the case with fruit and vegetables. Like I said I really didn’t know anything about gardening. I didn’t understand how plants work.

Our peach trees were such a welcome sight as a sign of spring. I just absolutely love the colors of the flowers and seeing them brings me a lot of joy. Of course now what we are seeing are the tiny peaches and I am looking forward to when they are ready to eat. 

This year both of our apple trees were looking so beautiful. One still has the pretty flowers, but the other one looks like it will not provide us any apples this year. However, I did enjoy the flowers while they lasted. But my husband is ready to chop down the tree because it has never produced any apples. I am still holding out hope for the other one.
