Edible Plants

The Garden in the Woods is planned for both productivity and beauty.  As the garden and the gardener’s family and interests grow and change over time this balance will change some.  Ideas for using harvests are on the Harvest Plans page.  Current edible or otherwise harvestable plantings in addition to the vegetable garden, the Containers by the North Retaining Wall and the Containers by and On the Deck are listed in the following tables.
