This is my front yard as seen from my street in the middle of June.
Filled the beds with free compost that the city gives away. You can see behind my girlfriend the garden that I put in parkway that used to be paved.
Seeds started sprouting quickly. I sowed many directly, and some I started in a small hoop house I made in the backyard. Almost all my plants I grew from seed.
Filled cinder blocks with compost too. They’ll hold the wood chips off the sidewalk and create a honeybee sanctuary with lavender, rosemary, thyme, and basil planted in them.
This is one of my favorite features of the garden. I built a “free veggies” box to help spread the wealth. All sorts of people take what I offer up. I’ve seen people drive upand get out of there car just to check what’s in the box. It is amazing how many zucchinis my neighbors will eat.
For those that worried about HOA’s or bringing down my neighbors property value. Here is a side by side of my property line with the neighbor to my east.
