Has anyone used vegetables for ornamental use?
I really like the idea of using vegetables as an ornamental annual. I have had peppers in pots on the deck because I like the shape they take. I am trying to cover a small barn/shed on the south and west sides with some kind of vine. I have already decided that I am going to use morning glories or thunbergia on the west side. But my veggie garden is going to be oriented to the south of the barn, so I am think about growing some runner beans or peas on it. I have found Scarlet Emperor beans, which have such an abundance of scarlet flowers, they would be pretty I think. Also thinking about something like this on the deck railings. What about small squash or cucumbers? Has anyone grown vining veggies this way?
