GARDEN SPOT: Herb Quarterly Summer 2009

Check out this summer’s issue of The Herb Quarterly features a little piece (page 66) on our urban farming project.  They also have a great article on using edible flowers!

A few years after Farmer D smothered the lawn and planted a garden out front, we sold our first edible flower back in 1994 to a local tea shop.  Since then we have been providing not only edible flowers but herbs and heirloom vegetables and greens to local clients.

So not only does our little plot of land provide us with 99% of our produce but a viable income to boot.

    How funny that you post this today, I have a few flowers that I know are edible in our garden but I was just wondering last night how many of the ‘ornamentals’ we all know so well might also be edible! Now I can get this magazine and have a better idea.
