Another day of BlogHer2012 in New York City for me, and the rest of my edible landscaping tour for you! Hope you’re having a wonderful Friday!
Welcome to the 2nd half of my urban homestead tour as part of Take Back Urban Homesteading’s Video and Photo Tour Action Day. I’ve include the map of our flower and vegetable gardens to orient you on the left side of our urban homestead, i.e. our suburban yard. Here’s Part 1.
Looking at our main vegetable garden, you will also see part of our clothesline.
Hiding in this bed functioning as annual plants are a cherry tomato, cabbage, parsley, pepper, and sunflowers. I also have a permanent planting of a cherry bush, blueberry bushes, and grapevines. There are 2 grapevines next to the house, close to the back porch. Growing next to the back porch is our oldest grapevine – concord grapes.
This is our main vegetable garden from May. The tomato plants are much, much bigger now.
Grapevines and Raspberry Vines
At the end of the main vegetable garden next to the driveway we have a small bed of blackberry and raspberry vines, both of which take up little space. In the back is our porch where you’ll find the concord grapevine, clematis, and a peach-colored climbing rose, all of which shade the porch in the summer.
