I was drawn to the photo of this article -- so well-connected to your topic! Sometimes I spend so much time working on the computer, I feel like my brain is the size of my laptop. I get outside for a while, and my brain expands back to garden size. Ahh.

Front-yard gardening is becoming a neighborhood past-time here in Oakland, CA. Most of the homes here have small yards (front and back) so folks grow veggies wherever they have sun. Two "city issues" with this: 1) Oakland is pretty progressive about urban agriculture and food security concerns, so few people mind and 2) Oakland doesn't have much extra $$ for city services, so unless you shoot someone in that raised bed, there's little chance of code enforcement. BTW, I've seen quite a few front-yard veg gardens that looked a lot better than some scraggly, overgrown lawns. No matter what you grow there, I only request that folks keep it picked up and tidy.
