Lawn = yawn. Grow veggies instead

One of my pet peeves as a gardener and former landscaper is seeing people pouring so much time, money, and energy in trying to have the most lush, green lawn in the neighborhood. A lawn that does nothing for pollinators (probably soaked in Round-Up) and contributes little practical good for the homeowner. So I was excited to read this blog post my brother found and emailed to me, that shows how one man transformed his drab lawn into quite an edible garden that produced so much, he had to start giving some away to neighbors.

Everybody wins: the homeowner saves money on groceries and gets healthy produce w/out added chemicals, the bees get a buffet of nectar, and surrounding property values go up thanks to the ornamental beauty of his lush garden.
