Growing front-yard food can rile neighbors

A dedicated group of vegetable gardeners is ripping out their front lawns and planting dinner.
Historian Nat Zappia takes care of his vegetable parcel at his home in Santa Monica, California.
Their front-yard kitchen gardens, with everything from vegetables to herbs and salad greens, are a source of food, a topic of conversation with the neighbors and a political statement
Good for them, I believe in planting things that you can get something off of to eat. Flowers are pretty, food is good.

I'm with you piemaker. I think some garden plants are pretty. Peppers for example. I once had a tomato plant in my front yard. But I wouldn't recommend ripping up and replacing the landscape with only veggies, it is better to incorporate them into the landscape and keep things looking nice and neighbors won't complain. Giving neighbors a few prize tomatos helps improve relations also! :D

Hey neighbor could you please post to the garden group and then drop off some of those nice tomatoes ?
