This guy decided that lawn upkeep was simply too time consuming. So he came up with an alternative strategy. He planted an awesome vegetable garden instead. See what happened…
This is what his front yard looks like from the street.
He first installed raised wooden beds.
Then he filled the beds with compost.
Early signs of growth.
A little precipitation never hurts!
He rigged up an irrigation system.
First came arugula…
Not in it for profit, he gave his produce away for free.
Can’t get enough beets.
Fresh string beans.
Tomatillos…don’t see these every day.
Cucumbers…probably great for pickling.
Not yey ripe tomatoes.
Let’s not forget the flower bed.
Oh, and he grows herbs too.
Here’s what the garden looks like from above.
His next project?
His neighbor’s house, of course.
Can’t wait to see how this one turns out!
After seeing this, I don’t think I’ll ever be satisfied with a grass lawn. This produce just looks too good.
