Eat Your Yard!
Edible trees, shrubs, vines, herbs and flowers for your landscape
Eat Your Yard! proves that you can have your beautiful landscape and eat it too! Sure, vegetables are nice, but you don’t have to rip up your front lawn and plant scraggly squash in order to have a food-producing garden. Eat Your Yard! proposes a new way to use the garden more efficiently than ever. Edible fruit trees, shrubs, vines, herbs, and flowers provide beautiful blossoms, foliage, and structure, while also offering fruits, nuts, herbs, and seeds that you can eat fresh or preserve for year-round enjoyment. Author Nan K. Chase gives firsthand information and advice for growing 35 plants that offer the best landscape features and culinary use. Recipes ranging from savory cherry sauce to pickled grape leaves to mint wine to grilled yucca demonstrate the infinite culinary possibilities your yard can offer.
Nan K. Chase writes about architecture and landscape design from her home in western North Carolina. She is the co-author of Bark House Style and author of Asheville: A History.
