At home I usually put most of the flowers in the front yard (faces east) and the HOA does not allow "vegetative" plants in the front yard. However, I do like to sneak in some edibles like roses, chives, marigolds, lavender, thyme, nasturtiums in there since the idiots who wrote this stupid rule don't know that technically all of these things are edible or that if someone actually wanted to make a case out of it, grass is not only technically edible, it is definitely "vegetative".
I have most of the edibles in the backyard, but I also have most of the orchids, succulents, and some flowering plants (hibiscus, gardenia, and roses) there as well.
I put a lot of the larger plants like the tomatoes, vines (cukes, squash, beans) in large pots. I have a lot of other potted plants both edible and ornamental surrounding the garden. In the garden itself, I plant mostly corn in summer, broccoli, and Asian greens in the cooler months. The pots contain citrus, peppers, tomatoes, beans, peas, cucumber, eggplant, taro, ginger, turmeric, herbs lavender, spearmint, peppermint, chocolate mint, thyme, greek oregano, bay leaves, green onions, dragon fruit, persimmon, and strawberries. I have bay leaves (California and bay laurel), Indian curry, bilimbi, and some accidental pepper, lemon, confederate rose, calamondin and Mr. Lincoln roses that have gone to ground Some of them will have to get pulled out because they are not in a good place. I have aloe and a Mexican oregano in my main garden and they will need to come out eventually as it was not intended for them to be there permanently. I have to thin the aloe a few times a year just to keep them from spreading.
I tried to grow squash under the corn once or twice, but the vines have a mind of their own and want to stray either up the corn or out of the bed, so I don't do much of that anymore. Once, I planted a Tahitian squash, it took over half my backyard and tried to go through the fence and take over the neighbor's yard. The dragon fruit like to go through the fence too, I have to keep pulling it back and cutting it. My back yard is 54 ft wide and 15- 30 ft wide. It is not a big space and I have just a trail between the pots.
