This is what I want in my backyard! I love this arrangement - put a long wood picnic table and a long string of wine bottle or mason jar lights, and it would be a perfect outdoor dining area... Good idea for deck
It is called a Potager garden which means when something is harvested, another plant appropriate for the season is put in it's place - hence an ever bearing garden. This can be accomplished with vegetables, flowers, herbs and perennials.
Northwest native plants in this garden include Western Columbine (Aquilegia formosa), Western Wild Ginger (Asarum caudatum), Partridge Foot (Luetkea pectinata), and Rose Meadowsweet (Spiraea splendens var. splendens).
