It is possible to grow economically and with garden therapy work. I am working on growing an edible landscape in my front yard. I have 2 nan king cherry trees that were given to me.....so no cost. I bought 2 saskatoon bushes that did not cost much and will in a few years give me buckets of berries. The choke cherry tree was given to me by the earh. Just planting an elderberry bush this weekend. All of this is planted in amongst a mulched garden so watering is minimum. My back yard is has a big raspberry patch that began from one single plant given to me. My very small vegetable garden feeds me all summer and there are some that last right into the beginning of winter. Some of the above after it is growing require very little from me. I do not stress about there being weeds. I eat as many of them of the edible ones I can.
