I think eventually, backyard gardens will be the new "yards". With people's attention (hopefully) focusing more concern on eating locally grown, pesticide free fruit and vegetables, I believe we will be seeing more and more backyard gardens. I wonder what our relatively non imposing neighbors would say if we overturned our front grassy yard with the full sun into a farming working garden. That would mean however, that I (and my husband for that matter) would need to actually LEARN how to farm. I'm not like this teenager in Michigan I read about today that grew up in 4H and learning about farming as a child.
But I am very inspired and wowed by what she has created. I love her entrepreneurial spirit too. Maybe soon, I'll be posting about the lettuce I'm growing. We are loving the super awesome tomatoes that my husband is growing.
