The Edible Front Yard: The Mow-Less, Grow-More Plan for a Beautiful, Bountiful Garden from Timber Press

This is exactly the book that I'm looking for. I'm not a big fan of plant unless it is edible and I always have this vision of a front yard garden that was beautifully design using all edible plants. Not just it looks good for the front yard but maintaining it would be beneficial for your kitchen. On top of it all the money and effort you spend on this garden will be a fruitful to you and your family literally.

  1. In the first year of gardening I only grow edible plants in the front yard. But now I mix it with flower as well to attract the bees. Some flower are edible like nasturtium or viola. Leek look great in the front yard, although edible look very ornamentally stylish. I found that in winter veggies look great in the front-yard but warm loving vegetables has its own mind. I have replied your question about sunflower. If you have more question feel free to ask.

  2. Have limited land so I have to use my land wisely. However you are right, we need to plant some flowers too so that the bees will come and help with the pollination. Anyway thanks for the sunflower advice.
