My friends at Backyard Abundance inspired me to plant a container garden I can share with neighbors. I have a cherry tomato, sweet basil and lacinato kale planted in a stack of buckets from my stash of containers. It is growing next to my driveway. When the plants get big enough to harvest, I will print a sign and tell my neighbors to stop by and get a snack!
A couple of my friends have converted their whole front yard into an edible sharing garden. They have a bench and a little free library there also. Another friend carved out a wedge garden in his lawn and is putting in cherry tomatoes, carrots, strawberries and other fun finger food for sharing with passers-by.
Hmmm. . . I may add a pot of strawberries and chives to the menagerie. . .
This is an experiment in location. We have lots of walkers and bikers pass our house in good weather. I will have to see how people respond. Stay tuned!
What could you plant and share?
