Front Yard Gardens Explode All Over Town

Our town is just bursting with gardens, many of them new conversions of yards and previously unused strips of bare land. It's inspiring to see the many ways people have found to grow their veggies in their landscaping. I'm seeing gardens in front of rentals, duplexes, and apartment buildings too. Here's just a few photos to inspire!

These curbside veggie boxes are already bursting with salad makings:

Growing your own food is both patriotic AND stylish in this flag-bearing garden with nice block walls:

These duplex-dwellers aren't missing out on the opportunity to grow some veggies on their lawn:

An eclectic garden full of onions, borage, and greens, mulched with straw paths:

And this beauty, nicely landscaped with flowers, paths, and a raised veggie bed in the middle of what was probably once a boring old lawn:
