As summer is just around the corner, you may be already considering all of the amazing options you have to make your outdoor landscape look beautiful. But why not make it not only a gorgeous natural vision for your family and guest, but functional as well? Here are a few perfect vegetables to integrate into your garden landscape as both a beautiful variation, and one that can yield healthy veggies for your salads and summer dishes.
When it comes to summer salads that can be perfectly paired with your outdoor entertaining — barbecues and picnics, in particular — there are two basic staples that every garden should include: tomatoes and cucumbers. Both of these classic vegetables are not only as versatile as can be when it comes to food preparation and nutrition, but are relatively easy to grow in almost any residential landscape garden. You can mix it up visually by growing your cucumbers along a trellis on your home or hardscape, while the natural red of fresh tomatoes add a gorgeous color scheme integrated throughout your pre-existing garden.
Some Veggies Are Worth the Effort
Tomatoes and cucumbers are definitely among the easiest vegetables to add to your garden, but a few may take just a little extra care and effort — but are totally worth it! For example, corn and zucchini. In general, corn can be a bit tricky to grow in your garden landscape, especially since it requires a good amount of space. Once planted, however, corn is a true summer favorite that can not only prepared as a delicious seasonal salad and as an ideal side-dish with burgers and steak, but the vibrancy of its yellow color looks beautiful visually with your flowers and foliage. On that same note, zucchini may not have the same versatility of cucumbers and tomatoes, but are easy to grow and are one of the few worthwhile vegetables that can be turned into vegetarian entrees all on their own!
