    I love that you garden is in front of your home. Fabulous use of space! I'm in St. Pete, FL and just now getting ready to use the front yard for food production.

    Congrats on Farmer of the Day. It certainly is nice to know where your food comes from isn't it? I just have a small three raised bed garden but still it's a wonderful place to be in the cool of the morning.

    I love the front bed! Who says edibles can't have curb appeal!

    That's a cool use of between-driveway space! Do you have edibles growing out front?
