Italian Kitchen Garden Plants
One idea is an Italian kitchen garden. Vegetables to grow could include sprouting broccoli; Romano pole bean, fava or cannellini beans; fennel; Chioggia or candy-stripe beets; and paste or drying tomatoes.
Herbs could include basil, rosemary, oregano, thyme and sage.
Gourmet greens such as arugula, radicchio, romaine lettuce and cutting chicory will add robust flavors to your salads. And include your favorite edible flowers such as nasturtium, pansy, borage, lavender or chives.
