Happy Monday

It's the start of a new week and I'm always excited to see what lies ahead.

I have the house getting painted this month, and new cedar shingles.
I feel like my thoughts are always two steps ahead of what's actually going on.

I need to get the back patio done, but find myself thinking of landscaping after the paint.
As time marches on I have become aware of how processed our food is. Compound that with a 
drought that wont't end, along with a FB feed I follow called "grow food not lawns", and naturally
I'm considering planting edible plants only.

We'll see how far I get with this one. 

Front Yard Vegetable Garden | An English cottage garden is basically a garden that mixes perennials and vegetables.  Although it doesn’t always.  Sometimes it’s just perennials.  Things are grown close together so that when the vegetables come out of the garden, there’s still a lot of garden left to look at.  Heights are always varying and there’s sort of a “just thrown together” look to it.  Which is really hard to do without it looking like it’s just thrown together.:

This flower-filled front yard garden incorporates lots of herbs and vegetables, too -- so harvesting fresh, homegrown produce is a breeze: http://www.bhg.com/gardening/landscaping-projects/landscape-basics/front-yard-flower-power/?socsrc=bhgpin032514edibleplants&page=12:

Could you imagine?

I'm feeling really inspired right now...


Thanks for stopping in,
