Not for Eating

Spotted in Albert Park this week:
“Please be advised that these are ornamental vegetables – they are not for eating”

Normally when I come across vegetable gardens in public spaces they’re part of a project to encourage sharing and eating fresh food (like the Incredible Edible garden I saw in Geraldine a few weeks ago). While I appreciate that vege patches can look good, it seems counterintuitive to grow something edible and then tell people it’s not for eating!
