Paul Drown's FRONT/ BACK YARD Gardening in Austin Texas

This is a friend's, Paul Drown, house in Austin Texas and it is a wonderful example of a victory garden! The grass was removed from the front yard near the street and fall/ winter vegetables were planted. There is nothing healthier than eating veggies that were just picked from your own yard- also chemical & salmonella free!

Before this, I had never thought of doing edibles in my front yard....this makes me VERY excited to move to Texas!

I am actually salivating right now looking at these pictures, mmmmmm.
