When this homeowner looked out at his green lawn, he started to wonder, "what's the point?" It looks okay, but it's a little boring. It's a lot of work and it's not like it's ever going to do something nice like give you a fresh dinner. Check out what he did next.
Feast your eyes on this!
They started with a series of boxes.
His city was giving away compost for free. That's what you're seeing in the boxes.
Support systems started coming up as the seeds began sprouting.
The hardest part was developing the irrigation system.
Cinder blocks and wood chips fill in the rest of the lawn.
First came the arugula.
Spinach was next to arrive.
Beets brought some color.
Everything's coming up radishes.
A whole wreath of carrots, pulled from the lawn.
There was so much yield that the guy actually had to give away vegetables.
Those are some good-looking green onions.
Those beans are Romano Musica to my ears!
What a lovely bunch of tomatillos.
Big and beautiful cucumbers.
Just one of a whole peck of peppers.
One tomato down, five more to go.
As an added bonus, beautiful flowers blossom before squash grows.
Of course, a few planted flowers never hurt either.
Cinder blocks are perfect for growing herbs.
A look at the neighbor's lawn does not make a winning case in grass's favor.
Maybe this neighbor will take a cue from the fruitful house next door!
