small space edible landscaping 2010

The edible landscape project in 2009 was large...very large. Over 1500 square feet of vegetables, fruit, flowers, herbs were bursting from their beds throughout the season. But as I met more and more people who were thrilled by the idea of edible landscaping, I was reminded that most of us don't have such grandiose space to work with. So this year's theme is going to be all about what you can do in a small space. Minnesota Master Gardeners are going to be working on the Veggies by the Yard project in the beds of last year's edible landscape, and I will be transforming other areas of the display and trial gardens into tiny oases of beautiful edibles. Prepare to see fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, flowers and small fruits intermingling in the ground and in containers. You don't need a lot of space to have an edible landscape, so come by the U of M Demonstration Gardens this season to get inspired!
