Edible Front Yards
So here at the end of winter, when I start my yearly yearning for spring and begin planning my garden, I am learning more about edible landscaping. Since I already have five SFG boxes in front of my house, the next step of creating even more of an edible front yard, isn't too hard to imagine. And I've had many favorable comments about the boxes so far, so I don't think my neighbors would mind more front yard edibles. :)
Of course, there are also many inspiring website on this topic, such as The Front Yard Farmer, Dog Island Farm, and--of course-- UrbanHomestead.org. Northwest Edible Life even explains why you shouldn't rip up your grass before planting edibles. Good information!
I'm not sure how many of these ideas I'll be able to implement this coming spring, but I'm moving in this direction...
I would love to hear your experience and ideas on edible front yards!
