Here's a quick bit of video inspiration for anyone who wants to build a trellis this spring.

The Food Forest card game is all about edible landscaping. Edible landscapes are a passion of mine, and I feel that everyone would be happier, healthier, and safer if they were to replace their grass with food. Since we purchased our home 2.5 years ago, I've been replacing my entire front lawn with edible plants. This is the pole bean trellis that I constructed last year for one of several raised beds out front. Some people worry about what the neighbors will say if they deviate from the typical lawn and landscape plants. Well, if you design your edible landscape well, they'll say "Wow!" Every time I'm in my front gardens, someone stops to say how much they love seeing what's growing in my yard. Whether it's tomatoes, or strawberries, or garlic (like right now) somebody is always stopping to take a look. My gardens are becoming a local tourist attraction.

So, if you're concerned about what people will say, don't sweat it. Just do a nice job with it and they'll appreciate it as much as any ornamental garden. Don't be restrained by what you think people think. Just make cool stuff and they'll probably like it.



If you're into edible landscapes, join me on Instagram and YouTube to watch me turn our residential city lot into Permaculture-inspired gardens.

Hey friends,

I just posted a new blog entry about 21 Choice Perennials for 4-Season Climates: http://www.bit.ly/21PerennialVeggies

The especially helpful thing is that I researched the USDA Hardiness Zones of each, and put them in a handy grid! It's the list I wish I had a decade ago! I think this will be really helpful to people who are interested in food forests and Permaculture.

Enjoy!
