Food not lawns...Are you planting a garden this year?

There is nothing better than a freshly picked vegetable from your own yard. lanting and growing your own food is the easiest, healthiest thing to do. Anybody here into seed saving? (The whole history of that and how Corporations tried to suppress it is a thread unto itself.) We created two new beds in our front yard solely for the sake of veggies, herbs and edible flowers. We will install two decorative trellises for tomatoes and pole beans. In front of this will be our herb bushes, lavender, rosemary, dill, and cilantro. At the base we will lay out a pattern of kale, spinach, mustard greens, beets. For spots of color we're got edible flowers, and Marigold (to keep the bugs out) Quite a few of our neighbors were surprised to find out it wouldn't be some silly bed of decorative annuals. I the backyard, we have our older raised bed in the very back but we opened up two other spots in the yard this year. Basically any place we have sun we will be growing food. There also a certain satisfaction in the fact that your saving $$$$ and getting a load of carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, etc all from a few cents worth of seeds.
