Did you ever hear about the ‘edible landscaping’ movement? Tons of people are getting into it. Why just have ornamental plants in your yard when you can have a produce department right outside your front door? You might choose to go with an edible landscape for environmental purposes like reducing carbon emissions by growing locally. Even better—in the humble opinion of a self-admitted foodie—never be at a loss for fresh herbs and veggies in your culinary creations! Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.

Fresh herbs can make a piece of cardboard taste good so why not use them on a regular basis for all of your meals? I’ve found that if I’m growing my own herbs, and I can step out of the kitchen door with a pair of scissors, clip a quick handful and add that punch of flavor with ease. I urge you to grow your own, even if they are just in a hanging basket. Make sure you grow the ones you use the most. Mine include parsley, basil, rosemary, sage, chives and cilantro. Then, before you leave for your next camp trip, just snip a couple of bunches of each one to elevate your camp cuisine.
