A neighbor near my favorite coffee shop in Studio City has had this front yard vegetable garden for a few years now. They carve out some sections of their lawn and created these beds. I have seen everything from Swiss Chard to Spinach to cabbage to lettuce growing there. In some of the larger plots I see that they now have a very established raspberry bush which already had fruit going ripe.
They also had this bed of zucchini that looks as if it might eventually take over the yard, if not the neighborhood. (LAUGH)
We are having some small success with our own front yard vegetables containers and it is always great to see people have a little productivity in their garden instead of just lawn and perennial shrubs.
