Certain vegetables and cultivars make attractive as well as edible displays. You can plant an ornamental vegetable garden in the front or side yard or even add vegetables to your flower garden.

For your ornamental garden, choose crops that have a variety of colors, textures and sizes. Crops such as beans, cabbage, chard, chives, eggplant, flowering kale, leaf lettuce, okra, parsley, peppers and sunflowers work well. You can also use cucumbers, herbs and tomatoes.

The ornamental vegetable garden on page 3 shows one of many ways you could plan such a garden. This garden would look particularly nice on a gently sloping hillside. Theme gardens—such as a salad bowl garden or a children's garden—are also easy.

Gardening is also a great way to provide healthy food for you and your loved ones. When you buy produce from the store, it just isnt the same as presenting a salad to your family that came exclusively from your garden worked by your own two hands.
