Veggies Incognito

Sunflower

The sunflowers are blooming at the back of the veggie patch. This one is a Mammoth Russian Sunflower grown from seed and now 10 feet tall! You’d never expect it to blend into the background.

Integrated Veggies

The veggie patch often overflows its boundaries into the adjacent flower bed. The photo here shows cucumber vines rambling over artemisia and rudbeckia plants. The interplay of textures and colors is visually appealing, and the chicken wire support trellis is completely hidden in the foliage!

Veggies BeyondCan you find the sunflower pictured in the first photo? Do you know where the cucumbers are hidden? Integrating vegetable plants with ornamentals creates a soft transition between the veggie patch and the surrounding landscape.
