What's Eating My Edible Yard?
Posted 21 April 2012 - 09:50 AM
I don't have unlimited space for gardens, so I try to squeeze things in wherever I can. Although I love the idea of edible landscaping, I have a enough trouble keeping the animals out of my fenced in vegetable garden. Planting vegetables throughout my lawn just seems to encourage every rabbit, groundhog and whatnot to homestead there. The only plants that survived last year were the okra and artichokes.
Have you had better success with edible landscaping and if so, what plants survived in your yard. (This kale was grown in protective custody. Flowers in the vegetable garden I can do. Vegetables in the flower beds is another story.)
