How To Get The Most Out Of Your Edible Garden
Planting an edible garden is an enjoyable project that will yield high-quality produce and give you the opportunity to try heirloom varieties at prices that are far lower than your local food market. Edible gardens also provide an educational opportunity for families with children. To get the most out of your garden, plan it out properly, prepare the soil well and make sure you have easy access to pick your wonderful produce at the peak of perfection.

Plant Some Flavourful Herbs
Nowadays many of us are using a wide variety of fresh herbs to spice up our food and add health benefits. Set aside some space in your plot for an herb garden. Sage requires very little water, and produces soft gray leaves all season. Basil is a wonderful addition to many dishes, and its distinctive aroma signals that warmer weather has arrived. Thyme can be grown as a ground cover, and rosemary is like a mini pine tree and is tough and easy to grow. Wait until the weather really warms up to plant parsley. Be careful if you plant mint, since it has a tendency to spread, even in places where it is unwanted. Keeping mint confined in a pot may be the best idea.
