One of the beautiful aspects of edible gardening is the chance to be artful in one’s approach to growing their own food. Edible gardening allows a certain style and grace to be portrayed through plant selection, planting locations and garden design.

My son has a love for tomatoes. He likes other types of produce, but his love for tomatoes is unmatched. As a result he devotes his entire personal garden space to growing tomatoes.

My 7 year-old daughter has a more well-rounded approach to edible gardening. She has a variety of produce growing in a very intense method. Chioggia beets intermingle with purple dragon carrots. Swiss chard plays nice with broccolini and snap peas.

The ways to make art in edible gardens are endless. One last example for this post is below. My son created this stepping stone to honor my Great-Aunt Georgette. She was the original “Backyard Farmer” and taught me much of what I know about gardening and nature.

Does edible gardening inspire you to make art? Yes you say…how so?
