Turn your front yard into a vegetable garden

Transform your front yard into a bountiful vegetable garden with these 4 helpful tips from Karen Bertelsen.


3 Try to follow square-foot basics
For my veggie garden, I followed the basic rules of square foot gardening. This method has plants growing in squares, which allows for more vegetables to be grown in a smaller space.

Not only did no one complain about my garden, but I had many people tell me they were planning on doing the very same thing next year. It wasn't an eyesore. It wasn't a hazard. It was an inspiration.

And best of all, it was filling. Which I could never say about the roses, no matter how many of them I ate.
