Rainbow Salad Garden Beds are so pretty!
After seeing this gorgeous photo on Pinterest last week:
I was inspired to grow a Rainbow Salad Garden Bed for our family.
What a perfect way to have edible landscaping in such a pretty shape with fresh healthy vegetables. Of course this rainbow edible landscaping is on a much larger scale than what we’re growing here at home. These photos are from the beautiful Eden Project in Cornwall, England. They also have huge biodome conservatories full of tropical plants; what a wonderful botanical garden this would be to visit!

Our Rainbow Garden Salad Bed
We sowed our rainbow garden salad bed this past week with kale, 3 different kinds of lettuce (light green, dark green and red), spinach, red beets and yellow beets.
I also sowed some peppermint swiss chard at the top two corners, calendula flowers on the side and sunflowers with a butterfly wild flower blend behind the rainbow salad bed.
Here’s what the bed looked like a month after sowing
Have you ever grown a rainbow shaped garden bed?
