Seasonal Eating: DIY Planter for Fall Edibles
“Everyone loves the natural beauty of flowers and ornamental foliage. However, edible plants provide us with more than just attractive foliage – delicious homegrown food right at our fingertips. A seasonal edible planter offers fresh ingredients year-round, no matter the temperature.
Choose cool-season vegetables such as arugula, spinach, kale, carrots and herbs. You’ll not only enjoy the stylish décor, but you can eat it, too. Mix edible plants with ornamental in your container for added appeal.”
Just because we’re inching closer and closer to the end of summer doesn’t mean you can’t adorn your porch or patio with beautiful planters. Simply swap out the old, tired plants that are in them for fresh cooler-weather edibles and a few ornamental plants and you’ll have lovely planters that will supply you with great food and lovely decor.
