Vegetable gardens

 We have a front-yard vegetable garden here in the mountains, carved out of former driveway (it was in full sun, so perfect for raised beds).

But I've been admiring a garden that is not exactly a front yard, but lawn space converted to vegetables.

What's not to like about that?

This garden is on the property of Grace Presbyterian Church on Merrimon Avenue in Asheville, North Carolina. It appeared for the first time this winter, with hardy vegetables such as kale and broccoli.

Now it's full of tomatoes, squash, and chard.

How nice is that!

  1. It is perfectly nice and such a wonderful idea -- does the community get to share the bounty? (Nancy @ Leaping Greenly)


Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
