Front Yard Potager
This is an organic potager front yard garden I started two years ago. From Wikipedia: A potager garden is a French method of creating ornamental vegetable or kitchen gardens. Often flowers (edible and non-edible) and herbs are planted with the vegetables to enhance the beauty. At my last count I have 44 varieties of vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers. The geometric layout can be seen in the first picture. In the summer, the layout creates 4 outdoor rooms, each bordered by plants. Note: this is a working garden, so it's not always picture perfect.
The Tao that can be spoken may not be the Tao, but the Zen that can be seen is definitely “on trend”. YardShare members Tracy and Wendy Evans show us how it’s done with their lovely landscape in Hurricane, Utah.
