Alcea rosea, wild fennel and blackberries in the kitchen garden in front of the house. When we decided where to make the kitchen garden, we thought to the principles of permaculture, according to which it must be next to the house. The sun exposure is important too, and there the plants have sun for all the day. In the north side we planted apple trees and a quince, that has a beautiful blooming and very useful fruits for making jam. Their shadow will never cover tomatoes and salads!
