The kitchen garden has become fashionable again. Call it backyard farming — people are replacing the annuals that they invest in year-after-year with attractive herbs and vegetables. The kitchen garden is not only pretty; it’s tasty too.
Annuals have been a historic gardening staple because they are undeniably beautiful. Annuals are prized because they bloom more then perennials, are relatively easy to care for and are simply changed if you decide to mix up colours. The downside to these plants is that other than looking good, they don’t give anything back.
