I still sneak in a few herbs, carrots, cucumbers in the front yard but I've learned my lesson with the pumpkins. I thought they were going to take over, not just my yard but the whole neighbourhood's and then the world. :) hehehe!|
My kids loved watching them grow but once is enough.
In the backyard I still plant carrots, radishes, garlic, chives, herbs and peanuts amongst my flowers.
The vine stuff like, cucumbers, squash and gourds, I plant them around my fruit trees.
Strawberries and bush beans at the edge of my flowerbeds so I can keep an eye on them. It's a race between the squirrels, birds and I to see who gets the strawberries first.
Tomatoes, peas, popcorn and sunflowers, I've a place just for them called a "flowerbed-wanna-be-vegetable-garden".
