When I was last home I visited the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin, Dublin, Ireland which is a beautiful and very inspiring place to spend some time. I thought they had a great idea of planting colourful vegetables throughout their flower borders.
I tried doing the same in our garden by planting beets and and cabbages when I got back to New York but the vegetables disappeared not sure what happened?!
We did plant some potatoes based on what we saw them doing in The New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. You halve a potato and dig a small drill and place the halved potatoes in it and cover with some soil. We didn’t get a bumper crop but at least the stalk was impressive, maybe next year we will have better luck.
