About My Edible Backyard
Why Jenny1 Love's Edible Plants
They are great to look at and with the dual purpose of ability to be eaten, especially fruit trees/bushes. They complement a garden and some even change their look/colour with the seasons and many also produces fragrant blossoms before these develop into fruits. A fruit tree laden with fruits is surely an illustration of achievement for the gardener and a feeling of abundance for families.
Some edible plants are not especially good to look at but they are fascinating, like peanuts and tapioca or yam. These are examples of edible plants that produce the edible parts underground! Some edible plants are seasonal like tomatoes, eggplants, peas etc etc and these give a year round change to the vegie patch both in colour and in food variety.
Herbs are great too for when u grow them, most herbs create a fragrant ambience and when brushed, the fragrance is enhanced. Herbs also enhance the taste of food apart from giving vitamins and various food values.
