Vegetables growing in my front yard

Well, I've managed to put my own picture on top but I need to blur it or something so you may read it better. I sorta want to put a lot of info I have there on a sidebar but I haven't figured that out yet.

If you stumble on this, the picture is from my lovely garden. I want to encourage more people to have gardens like mine. There's some red cabbage, scarlet runner beans and lettuce, all quite lovely.

Above is a picture perhaps taken the same day as my theme picture, I can't remember, but you can see some pansies make it even prettier. There's an onion there too and in the foreground is some sea kale that a groundhog munched on.

To be honest my ideas did not come from thin air. A major inspiration is Joy Larkcom and her book Creative Vegetable Gardening: Accenting Your Vegetables With Flowers(that's an amazon book link) If you go there and see the cover photo, the influence is obvious.

Anyway, this is what I want to see in other FRONT yards, yes, that's my front yard and I haven't shown you a 10th of it.

Well, I've seriously got to get to work. I hope somebody out there finds what I am doing as amazing as I do.

lol Joy Larcom's book was one of the two books that encouraged me to consider putting vegies and flowers together. Her books are so inspiring.
