Oh my goodness Lisa Von Domek Love this idea!  A few years ago I had a 'volunteer' acorn squash plant growing in my new flower bed.  It produced nine squashes!  

Fortunately I live in country & don't have neighbor's opinions to be concerned about.

Yes, we have problem with critters eating the flowers though

Hi Lisa Von Domek ,  We also have rabbits interested in what we are growing. The garden is fenced in, but they like the flowers too.

Let's see, right now I have rosemary, basil, oregano, parsley, marjoram, cilantro and thyme. I have Russian time as a garden cover too and it blooms in the spring. It is H U G E! It is in the lower left hand side of this photp.

I will not even kid myself, nor take the time, to think I can grow anything edible.  Unless maybe some weeds for your rabbits.  Or would they think me a black thumb as well.  lol  Mark

This is really cool Lisa but there are so many critters around here.

Bunnies have taken great delight in devouring everything they can get to this year.  So far, my rosemary, mint, lavender and basil have survived.  I like growing fragrant herbs in pots by my front door.

Good morning Lisa.  Now, if I could just find someone to plant these for me, I'd be all set.

Good morning Lisa. Not much room to grow things on a balcony in the sky! The views, however, are magnificent! Enjoy your day!

What a great idea, Lisa!  I'm seeing that more often but, didn't really stop to think how easy it can be.  Bookmarking!  Thanks!

Hi Lisa - by plan or not all the the deer around here think that our shrubs are edible.

Lisa thank you for the video, but I have such a brown thumb that nothings seems to grow.

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) over 3 years ago

I just don't have that green thumb for edibles. Not sure why. The only thing edible I've managed to keep alive is chives. LOL

Mary, the bunnies around my home are very chubby due to my gardens!

My grounds are too expansive to fence, Larry, you are lucky!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

Evelyn Johnston what a fabulous garden - so lovely!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

Practice Mark, practice and you'll turn that thumb of yours green!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

I am "critter" rich too Noah!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

They add color and a lovely fragrance Sharon!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

Wouldn't that be lovely Jeremy?!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

Professional gardeners are a good thing Gabe!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

That is definitely a good trade-off Wayne Martin !

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

You are welcome Debe!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

Deer do have a tendency to claim all shrubs Grant

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

Uh-oh George, we'll have to have you and Mark compare notes!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

One is better than none Sharon!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

I am so glad that you liked it Hannah!
