Austin Trend: Edible Gardens

A big trend we are seeing in Austin homes are edible gardens, and if a home doesn’t have raised beds many buyers are at least looking for a sunny corner of the yard in which to start one.  We too have joined the fun by making use of that often forgotten sliver of yard between our driveway and the neighbor’s house.  Vegetable gardens don’t need a ton of water.  Drip irrigation has helped us to grow healthy producing plants within the city’s water restrictions.  But what to do with all those greens?  Here’s an article from our latest magazine with some recipes:  http://article.homebydesign.com/pages/article/HBD_AUG_12_04/269910/index.html
