The Fruitful Front Yard
I don't know why more people don't plant edibles in the front yard. I guess they're afraid of thieves? Who knows. I don't have a front yard of my own, but if I did, I think I'd want to include some vegetables or fruits among the flowers and such. Why not mix things up a little? I think it would be interesting. And how fun it must be to pick a strawberry or two as you're heading out the front door.
On Saturday I passed by the house and saw they had set out -- or left behind? -- a few berries. I could only imagine there was someone inside, peering from behind a curtain, watching to see who the first taker might be. It was tempting, but I still have strawberries of my own to pick. And besides, perhaps these will lure and inspire someone else in the neighborhood to take up a little front yard gardening of their own.
