When it comes to landscaping there is a lot to consider. I have put a lot of thought into thinking about landscaping. While it may seem amazing, after building a house with my husband I have never got around to landscaping around my house. There has always been a lot of other things to do and spend time and money on. Well this spring I am changing that. I want to share my plan with you and help you think about what you can do with your space. My main first concern is making sure that I keep the gates shut and not allow the sheep and geese around my place.
There is a whole world of cabbage out there and some are quite beautiful.
Purple cabbage and Savoy cabbage make a pretty contrast to one another. You can also mix in some of your traditional varieties like Early Jersey Wakefield or any other favorite. Cabbages do require some room to spread out. You can have a lot of cabbage for your favorite fermented foods. My dad likes Kim Chi and you might too! There is little stopping you from planning your cabbage landscape with your favorite fermented things in mind!
The saffron crocus is gorgeous and produces some very expensive stems. Saffron is important because it adds a lot of Vitamin B to rice and thus prevents vitamin deficiencies when you have to eat a lot of rice. Combined with the arsenic issue with rice, it is easy to see why one should make their own yellow rice instead of buying the packets where if you rinse to remove arsenic you are taking away all the spices.
The bulbs are not expensive to buy and you can expand your patch yourself over time.
