Nice to see some mainstream recognition of edible gardening - and quoting Michael Judd! (Judd is the author of Edible Landscaping with a Permaculture Twist and For the Love of Paw Paws, and was a special guest on permies here.)

The New American Garden is Edible by Ken Wells for the Wall Street Journal


Photo from the article by JONATHAN BARKAN, of a landscape that incorporates edible, medicinal and ornamental plants from Boston-based HomeHarvest.

“We think of edible landscaping as the new American garden—sustainable, eco-friendly, easy to maintain,” says Michael Judd, founder of Ecologia, an edible-landscape design firm that serves dozens of residential and commercial clients in the Frederick, Md., area.

Me too! I just planted a Nelly Moser clematis at the gate by our front porch last month. I'm so hoping it flourishes and creates a colorful bower over the gate. Paul has asked me why I buy some of the perennials that I've planted here. My answer:  because flowers.

:-D

(Though later I might add that they are good pollinator plants and they feed the soul with beauty and joy.)

Wow. That photo is amazing!!! My goal is to have at least a few corners of our farm look like that. Just wow.
