Kelly Williams in Lutz, Florida sent in these great shots of her urban homestead garden and her gorgeous daughter, too!

And here's what she has to say about her edible yard and what she's growing: "This is a view of the back edible garden from the lanai. On the trellis we are growing cantaloupe, cucumbers, acorn squash, butternut squash and watermelon. Also growing in this area now are Floradade tomato, giant red mustard greens, long beans, romaine lettuce, lemongrass, collard greens, lacinato kale (aka dinosaur kale), fennel, strawberries, pineapple, blueberries, chard, nasturtium, carrots, recently harvested beets, jalapeno peppers, poblano peppers, mint, lavender, scallop squash (aka pattypan squash), spaghetti squash, parsley, rosemary, thyme, culantro, Italian parsley, cranberry hibiscus, onion, and chives. The fencing is to keep an armadillo from digging up the plants. We also grow non-edible native plants in this area, as well. Currently growing is beach sunflower, beautyberry, native cassia, blanket flower, scarlet sage, Muhly grass, and oakleaf hydrangea.
|Someone seems awfully proud of her urban homesteading prowess!|

Thanks so much for letting us visit your edible yard, Kelly. You've got a great thing going!
