I wish I had edible gardens like this in my backyard. Wouldn’t that be great to walk outside to get your ingredients for your meals every day? I am inspired. These raised edible beds featured on Houzz are a constant supply of fresh produce at your fingertips. However; my garden would be filled with all fried food from our recent soaring hot temperatures!
The raised beds are full of eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, corn, beans, zucchini, beets, edible flowers and more. Caitlin and Owen Black devote one 5-by-5 bed to greens. “My favorite to grow is arugula,” Caitlin says. “I could eat that every day!” Caitlin and Owen Black are co-owners of Aloe Designs. They use this space as a test garden for their company, and they love to experiment with exotic flowers and every type of edible imaginable before using the plants with a client.
Speaking of arugula, we have started topping our pasta meals with fresh arugula and fresh Parmesan cheese. After we cook the pasta, we drain (do not rinse) and pour back in the pot. Then we stir in fresh tomato sauce, garlic and onions, arugula and cheese for a couple of minutes. That’s it. Fresh ingredients really do taste better.
