We are in the age of sustainability. We buy energy-saving light bulbs and hybrid cars. I will furiously rummage through the office trash to retrieve an aluminum can that didn’t make it into the correct recycling bin. We want our ribeyes to be grass-fed, our eggs to be free-range, and our kale to be locally grown by a farmer in the next county.
What could be more local than getting food from your yard? And I’m not talking just a vegetable garden in the back. “Edible Landscapes” strives to make the plants that add ornamental value in the yard do double duty in the kitchen. You need a shade tree anyway, so why not choose one that can help out at dinner time, too?
