Decorating Your Front Yard With Vegetable Plants
Creative Front Yard Vegetable Display
Why Front Yard Vegetable Gardening?
When you think of someone decorating their front yard, with plant life, you automatically think of flowers.
Yes, flowers indeed are beautiful to the eye, beautiful to the senses, and gives you a since of beauty, that God made available to all of us.
However, I wonder if any of us really took a good look at someone's well manicured vegetable garden. It is indeed beautiful in itself. The different colored green foliage of the different vegetable plants and the flowers they produce are a kind of beauty we all seem to take for granted. When the flowers wilt, and the plant begin to produce fruit, it is a picture of nature at it's very best. Most experienced gardeners also know the importance of flowers planted near or at the edge of their vegetable garden to promote pollination.
If you ever look at someone's front yard flower display, usually it has different accents, to make it look creative and add to it's beauty and creativity. What I have done in my front yard on one side was to make something different I had never done before. I grew vegetables in large pots. It has several different colors of green foliage. It has fruit of different vegetables already, and of course flowers for pollination. I also added planters to hold them, to add to the creativity and beauty of the garden. I hope this page will help stir your imagination, fill your stomach with nourishment, as well as enrich your life with the beauty of nature in all it's forms.
Green lettuce is the first vegetable, I began growing. It is a cool weather vegetable, so it definitely gave me a run for my money here in Delaware, this Spring. Our weather was either extremely wet, or a little too cool, so getting it started proved to be a challenge. However, since I planted the lettuce in a pot, it was a little bit easier to try to outwit Mother Nature. I found myself, bringing my pot of lettuce inside during heavy rain storm, and inside during nights that proved to cold. Finally the weather stabilized and so did the lettuce. It is quite beautiful to look at, and it will certainly be quite tasty to eat.

Spring is my favorite time of year. It is the season that God shows us the renewal of life. It is the time of year our food is grown, and the planet blossoms with new growth. Par take in the gift God gives to us all. Grow something that is beautiful. Grow at least one thing that will feed yourself, for as long as your body and mind will permit. This will always remind you of the wonderful planet God gave us to survive and thrive in. Thank you Dear Lord for your blessings.
