I wanted to make a short video giving you guys a tour of my front yard vegetable garden this year. I’m growing basil, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, pumpkin, marigolds, artichokes, and herbs including oregano, French tarragon, stevia and sweet mint.
Mulch is really important for an organic garden. I love using straw as mulch in my garden because it’s cheap ($14 for a huge bale), it’s pretty, and it naturally decomposes.
It’s been four months since I ripped out my front lawn and put in a vegetable garden. I haven’t put the gravel down yet (been too busy) but I am already harvesting vegetables. I can’t believe how much food is getting produced!
We are getting closer to a front yard vegetable garden! Last weekend I laid out the raised beds.
