In my yard, if it isn't edible, it is a weed, otherwise I wouldn't feel right calling it the Garden of Eat'n.

My 1/2 acre yard has become something of an edible botanical garden, filled with such a variety of edible plants that it can sometimes be overwhelming to consider how to harvest and use it all. I have over 20 fruit trees, over 15 kinds of berries, dozens of medicinal and cooking herbs, and much more, all arranged in a way that looks like normal landscaping.

March 2015 has been season of blossoms and promises for the future harvests. In the Pacific Northwest we have had a really mild winter, bringing spring early. Gladly the dark days of winter have been replaced with days filled with blossoms and spring growth.
